Summary:Preventing users from rsh'ing

Many have sent responses indicating that if a file owned by root is in a
user's home directory, its permissions may still be changed and removed
by that user. They are right, of course. Thus copying a blank, root
owned ( permission 000) .rhosts file to a user's home directory is not a
secure solution. Most suggested tcpwrappers if I still needed some rsh

Thanks you for your responses,
Dan Freedman
