How do I reset permissions? Security problem
I installed a third party Samsung printer driver and then I come to find out that theres a security problem with the driver resetting permissions of a whole bunch of files and directories.
Ever since I installed it ive been getting popups in opera that I never got before and KDE freezes up every so often, it never did before.
If possible, How do I reset the permissions back to whatever they were?
I dont know exactly what got changed though.
Are you referring to the SCX-4200 drivers? I actually remember seeing this last year. IIRC you basically just need to track-down the binaries which were SUID root by the installer and revert the changes. I was under the impression this problem had been fixed in a subsequent release, though.
I dont know how to track down binaries, I dont even know what that means. :(
Could you give me a hint as to what do to and should I uninstall the samsung driver and try to manually install it?
I did do find / -type f -perm +4000 from the other thread but I dont know what the output of that means.
Here it is........
This is the only info I have on the driver
No, the one in link you provided is the same one I saw.
Well I guess thats good news and a coincident that my system started to act funny.
Now if I could just get my printer working that would be great..... :)
Thanks for the help.
