- Subject: security with the ftp daemon
I've set up the ftp server with inetutils on win2k, but I get a strange
I've set permissions so that only "Administrators" can access the cygwin
directories. The home directories are only accessible by their respective
users and /bin is Everyone and read-only.
However, after setting this up and rebooting the machine once, if I ftp in
as a regular user I can access all the administrator priviledge directories
(in read/write mode!) with no problem at all. Is this a known problem and
is there a way to get it to work securely? Surely the ftp daemon should
switch its user to the id of the person logging in?
Q-Games, Dylan Cuthbert.
