#628 closed defect (fixed)

files overly writable

Reported by: hamish Owned by: pka
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 777, perms
Cc: live-demo@…



in the ~user/data/ menu, these dirs are set a+w, which is to be avoided:

  • kml/
  • raster/
  • spatialite/
  • udig-data/

besides being a security risk, it also means that the files will be held in RAM(?), which is bad.

if you need to keep a file writable, add it to the "users" group.


chown -R root.users pathname/
chmod -R g+w pathname/
adduser user users

as GID survives the ISO building process while UID does not.

Owner: changed from live-demo@… to pka

The reason for this is the possitility to edit this data with a desktop GIS like QGIS. I will change the ownership/permissions when trunk is open again.

please move the ML email addr from the owner field if you take ownership of a ticket so it doesn't get lost
