Unix Tip #4534- August 10, 2018
PROTECT THE ROOT DIRECTORY AT ALL COST
Here is a little extra guard that can be taken if
anyone attempts, or accidentally recursively removes
files inside a directory. If and when it occurs,
the person will constantly be prompted with the
question"are you sure?"
Here is how it works in a safe area:
% cd /usr/tmp
% mkdir foo
% touch /usr/tmp/foo/\-i
% chmod 000 /usr/tmp/foo/\-i
NOTE: Use the fully qualified path to create the
file when creating.
% cd foo
% touch fee fii foo fum
% rm -rf *
Every little bit helps!
