SECURITY

pure-quotacheck switches real and effective uids/gids as soon as possible. Root privileges are never given back.
 
pure-quotacheck refuses to scan directories with uid = 0 (root) or gid = 0 (wheel/root) .
 
pure-quotacheck performs a chroot() call to the home directory. It never traverses parent directories.
 
pure-quotacheck only scans real files (no socket, no pipe, etc) .
 
pure-quotacheck enforces read access on directories to prevent against people doing chmod 0 before a quota scan.
 
pure-quotacheck enforces write access on the home directory to properly write the .ftpquota file.
 
pure-quotacheck never scans the same inode/device pair twice.
