Subject Securing spamd
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 16:41:36 GMT
I'd like you to review approximately how I'm running spamd. My concern
is security. You can see that the child processes are run by spamd user,
but the main process is still run by root:

ps -C spamd -o user,cmd
root     /usr/sbin/spamd -d -r /var/run/ -m 2 -u spamd --nouser-config --helper-home-dir=/sysram/spamassassin
spamd    spamd child
spamd    spamd child

How secure is that (no I didn't make any crazed chroots or so) and what
would you suggest to isolate spamd from possible outside intrusions?
