Question SE linux problem when security context is modified


Hi,

I am using AS4 U3, with SE linux enabled. I have a query regarding
security context.

If there is a file called "A" with security context " root sys system_ubject_r:bin_t" is modified to default security context "root sys rootbject_r:bin_t ", what will be the effect on this?

The file A is "Bourne shell script text executable" file, then whether there will be any problem to any one, who is using the file?

Please let me know, the behaviour of this scenario.


Thanks and Regards,
Raj

Hello and welcome to LQ.

Since you managed to crosspost this (so you clearly didn't read the LQ Rules) and to check wether this is a homework assignment allow me to return the question and ask: "what is (or how to find out) the difference between "root_u" and "system_u" identity"?
