    dac_override is intended to be used to check running process capabilities to identify those processes that are being given more capabilities than are generally considered safe. In general, running as root or with root privileges is a bad thing but some programmers take a lazy approach and just try to override security and privileges.
    to list root, you can [su ls /root] in a terminal and supply the root password when asked.
