Re: /proc filesystem allows bypassing directory permissions on Linux

Paul, in authentic kernels /proc/<PID>/fd/<FD> are symlinks, not anything other.
There're no such publicly accessible file objects, as file descriptors, there're
only files (including special ones), directories and symlinks. But the above
words don't necessary relate to patched kernels like distributed by third parties.
... that's exactly the problem.
I see, the /proc/*/fd/* objects seem "confused": are they symlinks,
hardlinks, or open file descriptors? I guess should always act as
the latter, where access mode flags (O_RDONLY or O_RDWR) are set at
open() and not changeable afterwards in fcntl(). Any open() on them
should behave as a dup().
