mtfs and permissions


Hi,


For tablets, with mtp-detect, ...
I am wondering

Code:
add username fuse
then the user can mount whatever mtpfs but also
whatever that uses fuse.

I think that it is not secured.

I am probably not correct...

Regards

Well, yes in my experience any use that is a member of the fuse group can mount almost any partition/drive. Although an ext2 (also ext3 ext4) may be read only if it was created by a different user.
It used to be that ntfs would also mount read only by default. But I cannot be sure if this is still true, and it may vary from distro to distro.

I think that it is not secured. a regular use of harddisk over fstab is more secured and you can allow more restrictions...
