/tmp should be owned by root:root
« on: November 04, 2022, 07:33:38 PM »

since a while now i recorgnized that the ownership of the /tmp folder has changed.

This was always root:root but since about half a year it is nobody:nobody

i haven't changed anything so it must have been an update.

If i change it to root:root it is changed nobody:root

Is this how it should be now? Because the csf firewall check tells me /tmp should be owned by root:root

So it seems like an error.

Can anyone tell me what happened here?
