I’m using daemontools to manage a few processes on my Debian box.
Among other things, I use it to manage svnserve, because it uses less
memory than Apache.
My /service/svnserve/run looks like this:
su svn -c “/usr/local/bin/svnserve --foreground --daemon --root
Is it safe for me to run like that ? If an attacker cracks svnserve,
what will they gain access to ? Since I su to svn, will the attacker
gain svn’s authorizations, or will they be able to gain root access ?
