rpld allows users to run it as superuser. If non-root users have accesslevel >= ACCLEV_USER they can use IMPORT and EXPORT command to overwrite every file on host system with superuser privileges.

There musst be a check to avoid this:

  • By checking and setting diffrent options for access levels
  • or (preferred) by disallowing to run as root without special force options.
