Description dharris 1999-06-08 00:08:11 UTC
The file /etc/skel/.screenrc has permissions 775. When I
install a new user which does not use its own Red Hat
private group (i.e. use the -g option to specify a shared
group), this file gets installed in the user's home
directory with permissions 775. This allows un-trusted
group members to write the file.

I think that no files in /etc/skel should have group write
because of this problem.

Comment 1 Dale Lovelace 1999-06-09 18:00:59 UTC
Permissions were actually 664, but probably a bad idea when you
consider a user without Red Hat's normal one group per user scheme.

Changed /etc/skel/.screenrc to 644
Fixed in /home/saqadoc/dale/SRPMS/screen-3.7.6-8.src.rpm.
All yours jbj.
