I've a group of users, all of which are in a single group. Then I have a Java daemon that is a member of a seperate group.
I want both the users and the daemon to have access to the same set of files. Apparently, adding the daemon to a secondary group so that this works is not generally workable.
What if I give the daemon ownership of files and directories and the group of all users group rights? What sort of problems might I see? Is this bad for security?
Do different UNIX and Linux environments interpret this differently? This environment is Linux: Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) Server.
