Overly restrictive permissions on symbolic links in root directory
|Reported by:||mjw||Owned by:||nobody|
|Has a Patch:||yes||Platform:||All|
I've noticed that the symbolic links in the root directory (/bin, for example) have no read, write or execute permissions. This prevents non-privileged users from sshing into a haiku box because the non-privileged user can not read or execute /bin/sh.
I'd expect the permissions on symlinks to be 0777.
With the attached patch, I can create an unprivileged user that can ssh into the box.
This bug looks similar to #12373, but that bug seems to be talking about different sources of problems.
