Dear Nekral,

> Often is arguable.

Are not computers meant to be infallible and perfect?


Privileged programs should be strict on what they accept.

Paths are un-safe unless you verify that all directories above are
root-owned and not group or world writeable.


How you count bugs, how you fix the issues, is up to you (does not have
to be to my liking). Please fix soon, before someone writes an exploit.
