Summary: permissions are too permissive by far for
/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*
Classification: openSUSE

Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3

Severity: Critical

Gecko/20100626 SUSE/3.6.6-1.1 Firefox/3.6.6

The permissions of the files above default to root.root 0644, what is very bad
IMHO. Given ifcfg-eth1 would be a wireless lan card, the password can be found
without encryption in this file - world readable.
This should not be the case IMHO and is a severe security violation. Please fix
ASAP.
The permissions ought to be 0400 with root.root, nothing else.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure wireless card from within yast
2. check the permissions of /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-*
3. should not be the case
Actual Results:
see above

Expected Results:
secure permission settings
