Ever since I upgraded to pine 4.03 (and now 4.04 and 4.05), it's
been complaining that the mail spool is vunerable and it needs
1777 protection. I changed the permissions on the mail spool and
the message goes away but I'm left wondering....
I used to have it the permissions/ownerships
drwxrwxr-x 2 root mail
What is wrong with this and what makes this vunerable???
That and do I really want to allow random files to be created in
my mail spool?
