I’ve been running suse 10.1 as Samba server and squid proxy for windows 3 clients in my family home. Windows clients had full read write access to shares. Sister likes peer 2 peer file sharing and then… kazaa!!! we’ve got worms. After worms ate all the .exe files on samba shares, I’ve turned off write access to all but 1 share. This share serves as a quarantine I check files in share then move them into the read only shares when confirmed safe.
This works but I’d like to free myself of this task and allow read/write to the more responsible members of the family. How can
I share samba and keep out worms?
Will user passwords on share be enough to stop worms writing to shares. If user is logged onto share and worm is on their system does it have same permissions as them?
Any input appreciated.
