tmpfs need quota support to avoid local DoS on a new systems
Last modified: 2014-03-05 04:23:59 EST
There is a problem with /run/user/ and /dev/shm. Ordinary users can write to /run/user/<login> dirs filling entire free space. This can lead to local DoS.
Additional information can be found in this thread
There's no way quota support for tmpfs can be ready in time for F15.
I realize that it is not a 10 lines bugfix :)
Thanks for the consideration of the problem.
I guess you're not expecting this to be fixed for F15, then? Moving to rawhide so the problem can be considered properly.
