TUCoPS :: Linux :: Discontinued :: usermo~1.txt

Linux usermode allows any user to shutdown, halt, reboot etc




COMMAND

    usermode

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

    Linux

PROBLEM

    The usermode package  allows unprivileged users  logged in at  the
    system console  to run  the halt,  poweroff, reboot,  and shutdown
    commands without needing to know the superuser's password.   While
    being able to halt, poweroff, and reboot is a desirable thing,  an
    unprivileged user can  also bring the  system to single-user  mode
    by running "shutdown now" with no additional flags.

SOLUTION

    For RedHat:

        sparc: ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.2/sparc/usermode-1.28-2.sparc.rpm
        alpha: ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.2/alpha/usermode-1.28-2.alpha.rpm
         i386: ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.2/i386/usermode-1.28-2.i386.rpm
      sources: ftp://updates.redhat.com/6.2/SRPMS/usermode-1.28-2.src.rpm
