io - I/O privilege file


device io


The special file /dev/io is a controlled security hole that allows a process to gain I/O privileges (which are normally reserved for kernel-internal code). Any process that holds a file descriptor on /dev/io open will get its IOPL bits in the flag register set, thus allowing it to perform direct I/O operations. This can be useful in order to write userland programs that handle some hardware directly. Note that even read-only access will grant the full I/O privileges.

In addition to any file access permissions on /dev/io the kernel enforces that only the super-user may open this device.

L'homme est le seul mâle qui batte sa femelle. On doit donc en déduire
que l'homme est le plus brutal des mâles... a moins que la femme ne
soit, de toutes les femelles, la plus insupportable.
