Description james labocki 2012-06-04 18:19:23 UTC
Description of problem:
The /var/lib/pulp/cache/grinder directory is world-writeable

Comment 1 Justin Sherrill 2012-06-04 20:23:56 UTC
This might be a blocker of  at a minimum it provides more information.

Comment 2 Justin Sherrill 2012-06-04 20:35:07 UTC
Errr, i meant dupe, not blocker.

Comment 3 Mike McCune 2012-06-13 15:31:49 UTC
gofer != grinder so I'd say this isn't a dupe.

Comment 5 Lukas Zapletal 2012-06-26 08:23:42 UTC
We are able to fix this in our installer, but I guess it's better to change this in the RPM itself.

Comment 6 Pradeep Kilambi 2012-07-05 13:12:21 UTC
fixed in grinder in commit 41ae9d47c4e3db84b5637cc6b6bdd001a7bdc47e

after fix:

# ls -ld /var/lib/pulp/cache/grinder/
drwxr-x---. 3 apache apache 4096 Jul  5 09:12 /var/lib/pulp/cache/grinder/

Comment 8 Garik Khachikyan 2012-09-19 11:48:56 UTC

I have got the grinder version of: grinder-0.0.149-1.el6cf.noarch and it is _not_ fixed.

One can see: 
drwxrwxrwx. 3 apache apache 4096 Sep 19 07:46 /var/lib/pulp/cache/grinder/

Comment 13 Garik Khachikyan 2012-10-03 15:15:50 UTC

... and grinder-0.0.150-1.el6cf.noarch has the fix!

now one can see:
drwxr-x---. 3 apache apache 4096 Oct  3 11:02 /var/lib/pulp/cache/grinder/
