/sbin/restorecon and hard links



[root e /]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora Core release 4 (Stentz)
[root e /]# adduser erik
[root e /]# su - erik
[erik e ~]$ ln /etc/passwd .
[erik e ~]$ exit
[root e /]#  ls -lZ /etc/passwd
-rw-r--r--  root     root   system_u:object_r:etc_t          /etc/passwd
[root e /]# restorecon -R /home
[root e /]# ls -lZ /etc/passwd
-rw-r--r--  root     root   user_u:object_r:user_home_t      /etc/passwd

Should it be like that?

/sbin/restorecon -R /home

might lead to strange security contexts for files belonging to root.

cheers,
Erik
