Getting Around setuid() or sticky bit issues
I am using CSSC "Compatibly Stupid Source Control" aka SCCS on a RedHat 6.1 Linux box to control a baseline for multiple users. I have been trying to write Perl scripts that will make use of sccs calls in order to make a readable/writable version of a file in the baseline. The problem that I am having via Perl, I get INSECURE errors/warnings when I try to run this script using sticky bit (chmod 4755). Is there a way to stop Perl from checking for taint system calls? Thanks.
