It appears that the completely undocumented routine 'nfs_mount' can be used by a non-root user to mount a daemon on a directory ala NFS. It seems to me that this is a very nasty security hole. I can't offer more details since, as I said, the routine is completely undocumented, and the only working example I have is in a piece of third-party software to which I do not have source. I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on this. -Rick -- |Rick Cochran 607-255-7223| |Cornell Materials Science Center rickmsc.cornell.edu| |E20 Clark Hall, Ithaca, N.Y. 14853 cornell!msc.cornell.edu!rick| | "Workstations - I bet you can't eat just one!" |
