I want to allow some fairly well trusted users the ablilty to do traces
with icmp. I can give them sudo, but how high is the risk of making
traceroute suid root? AFAIK making text editors or anything that has an
ability to run shell commands suid root is effectively giving them root
access, but other than exploiting vulnerabilities in traceroute itself, are
there any other issues?
