At Fri, 22 Feb 2002 it looks like Andrew Bartlett composed:
> Setuid root programs are *very* hard to write. As such, smbpasswd is no
> longer setuid root, it instead assumes that smbd is running on
> localhost, and changes the password 'over the network'. Should this not
> be the desired behaviour, then look at pam_smbpass. But I'm not sure
> how safe pam_smbpass is, becouse it calls code not originally intended
> to be setuid root...
Thanks Andrew, I appreciate your reply and thorough explaination.
