    Hi All,

    First, I apologise if this isn't a kernel question, but I think it is related.

    Slackware 10 base, 2.6.15.6

    I am normal user, in groups users and wheel. Why can I do this:


    nick@linuxamd:nick$ which ls
    /usr/bin/ls
    nick@linuxamd:nick$ ls -lsa /usr/bin/ls
    0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 2004-07-22 22:52 /usr/bin/ls -> ../../bin/ls
    nick@linuxamd:nick$ cd /bin
    nick@linuxamd:bin$ sudo chmod 111 ls
    nick@linuxamd:bin$ ls -lsa ls
    76 ---x--x--x 1 root bin 72608 2004-03-16 02:08 ls



    I shouldn't be able to execute 'ls' as I can't read it, shouldn't it?

    Nick
