Subject: [gentoo-user] pam limits
Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2007 11:42:08
1 Hi, ppl
3 I have the habit of imposing some limitations over all users via
4 /etc/security/limits.conf. For example I used to limit the number of
5 concurrent processes one can execute to prevent the system from simple
6 misuses like fork bombs by putting a limit (nproc) for group "users"
7 and all other common groups ("games" etc.)
9 Now that the behaviour of "useradd -m xyz" has changed from putting the
10 newuser in group "users" ("xyz:users") to putting the user in a group
11 with same name ("xyz:xyz") I would appreciate any advice on getting the
12 old behavior back or any workaround to achieve the same goal - all
13 users should be limited by default at creation time.
