Hi all, I have the following Q: If a client get a connection to a server using a remote connection wit a root privilege, and on the same time, another client have logged on to the first client with a root privilege. Can we say that the last client have a privilege access to the server as the first one (which is originally logged on the server directly) Thanx in advance...

    Default Root Access....

    Hi all,
    I have the following Q:

    If a client get a connection to a server using a remote connection wit
    a root privilege, and on the same time, another client have logged on
    to the first client with a root privilege. Can we say that the last
    client have a privilege access to the server as the first one (which
    is originally logged on the server directly)

    Thanx in advance

    User B can certainly fool user A to give away the authorization info,
    but its probably difficult to use the same comms channel concurrently.

    If you cant trust your sysadmin you are in deep trouble.

    Only way out of it is to buy Trusted Solaris.

    Then at least two people , the sysadmin and the security admin ,
    must be bad boys simultaneusly.
