I noticed after my install that the tmp directory was A- not a sticky B- still executable I went and changed etc/fstab to add loop,noexec,nosuid,rw, which I hope is the right thing to do. I rebooted and it looks like it worked. When doing an ls -l on the main directory, the tmp folder lit up all green in putty (cool, I hope) But the chmods I did with winscp will not take effect (they do on other directories) so I manually ran chmod 1777 on the tmp folder. Since centos seems to be pretty good at pre configuration, I am concerned that maybe I should not do this, but every security book says to do it. I am imagining I will be okay, and I hope if it is right, that others on the list that do not know about this, make the change. Especially if running a webserver. Right or wrong?
