Mildly curious.... As security team we occasionaly get request to "tighten" security of the system.
One of those is to change the default umask of the home directory to 077 (readable only for the user).
When replying back that Opensource is about sharing of information we usually get back wild eyed stares from americans.
I think this shows some difference between european and american company culture:
- Europeans assume everything is forbidden (especially looking at other peoples stuff) except when expliclity allowed.
- Americans assume everything is allowed except when explicitly forbidden.
A strange mindset for me as a european.
Also, what is the good thing of creating every user with its own group? And why should it have something to do with security?
