[New: openFATE 313496] get rid of world writable directories
Feature added by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)

Feature #313496, revision 1
Title: get rid of world writable directories

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Ludwig Nussel (lnussel)
Partner organization:

We should get rid of all /tmp like world writable directores besides /tmp and
/var/tmp themselves. This reduces the number of places where users could store
extra files that don't belong there. Also reduces security risks caused by
programs operating on such insecure directories. Candidates:

/var/lib/xemacs/lock/ /var/run/uscreens/ /var/spool/uucppublic/
/var/tmp/vi.recover/ /var/spool/mail/ /var/cache/fonts/
