"How to get root on Ubuntu 20.04 by pretending nobody’s /home":
@fribbledom great find!
In retrospect, it's weird that code only meant for the initial setup of a system is still present on an active system in the first place. It would be cool if those phases could be decoupled more.
@fribbledom hah, dropping prices before reading files seems pretty dangerous. Wonder if this would be better done by forking, dropping everything except a Unix socket, the dropping privs, opening the file and sending it back over.
@fribbledom More proof that simple is better: Wouldn't have happened if the action of checking for user accounts was just reading a file.
