Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 84805
swap space permissions
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:29 EDT
Description of problem:
file based swap space is created with the wrong
permissions allowing anyone-any user to scan the
swap space. It is created with 666 permissions
and should be created with 660 or better 600
permissions. The disk based rather then file
based swap space has 660 permissions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version 8.0 professional version
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add swap space manually
2. add swap space via the upgrade to 8.0 process
/SWAP created by the upgrade procedure has 666 permissions when it
should have 660 or 600 permissions
Easy to fix but this is a security problem on multi user systems.
Fixed in Phoebe and later
