Description Josh Bressers 2010-08-10 19:08:12 UTC
Right now the sandbox utility runs "shutil.rmtree()"

It would probably make more sense for it to run shred(1) on the files so there's nothing left on the system.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2011-06-01 11:43:18 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

As best as I can tell, this is still a valid bug. I'll move it to Fedora 15.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2011-06-01 14:15:40 UTC
I would do this but their is no python bindings to shred, that I know of.

Execing and requiring shred seems wrong.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2012-07-27 13:22:25 UTC
Since this version of Fedora is no longer supported I am closing this bugs.  If you are still seeing this bug in a current version of fedora, please reopen the bugzilla with the appropriate version number.
