Permissions of /root
Hello,

does anybody know a good reason why the permission.paranoid sets /root to
mode 711?
The harden_suse script suggests setting the mode for /root to 700. (This is
IMHO the right mode for /root)
The Versions 6.3, 6.4 and 7.0 of SUSE Linux seem to be affected from this
bug or feature (bug or feature
depends on your answers :-))

Regards,

Rüdiger Plüm
