RPM security (a newbie question)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


What does the process of installing new RPM package look like? There are some commands that such package is allowed to execute, right?
What are RPMs allowed to do, and what is forbidden? Is there any control
layer at all in the package manager, or is the control (e.g., during
package install) simply transferred to RPM-package-provided script??
Also what's the difference between "Everything" and "Fedora" dirs in
Fedora package tree?
I wonder how easy it is to create a rootkit/trojan horse/whatever and
get it loaded on Fedora users' computers.
