Re: [PATCH 13/14] security,sysctl: remove proc input checks out of sysctl handlers

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


NAK - You moved the check to see if someone has permission to make a
change AFTER the change was made.  The original semantics were
correct.  You must do the capable check, then update the value, then
do the other calculations with the new value.  You can't do the
permission check after you already made the changes.
