Re: [hylafax-users] Requiring hosts.hfaxd to be 0600 is bad practice

Sure - but how can hfaxd write it if it isn't writable by the fax/uucp

It can't -- but in some installations, the feature in question may be seen as entailing more risk than its benefit is worth.

(I've also made all scripts and script-sourced files non-writable by the fax user -- standing alone, the permissions on hosts.hfaxd is of course not enough of a change to be useful).
