Hi,
as one of security meausures, I learned that it is a good idea to do chmod
550 /proc/sys and chmod 550 /proc/net.
First question I have, is this true? It seems right, because ordinary users
cannot view network or system information, which is not a bad thing.
Second question is, I implemented the above, but after a reboot permisions
were back to standard ( I believe 555). How come?

Thanks

Max
