Subject: Linux Capability FAQ v0.2

Linux Capability FAQ v0.2 is available from


Changes from v0.1:

* Added Q6: How can I use capabilities to make sure Mr. Evil Luser
(eluser) can't exploit my "suid" programs?
* Added Q9: I noticed that the capability.h file lacks some
capabilities that are needed to fully emulate 2.0
securelevel. Is there a patch for this?
* other questions rewritten + spelling fixes
