Hi All,

I have been wondering about pl programs that are
used by the root account.  I have been marking them
to root and 700 to keep other out.  But it is occurring
to me, if the bad guys have access to my custom modules,
they could insert anything they want into it and have
root access.  So, I have been setting my pm's that I
need root programs to use to root and 700 as well.

What is best practice in this matter?

Many thanks,
-T
