Ticket #7742 (closed defect: invalid)
Group "vboxuser" grants too many rights
|Reported by:||mampf||Owned by:||klaus|
|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.10||Keywords:||security, rights, usb|
joining the vboxusers-group on a linux host grants too many rights to the user. You can see this by running any usb-polling program, as your devices might get disconnected.
In particular, please see this bug on launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/shotwell/+bug/555408 vboxusers-group makes tools like Shotwell (and others) unusable. Also, an user noticed, this is most probably a security problem. This does not occur with VB OSE.
Please fix asap, as this is a show stopper for either VirtualBox or Shotwell. Thanks.
