    In order to enable Shell Fork Bomb Protection, the /etc/profile file must be editable:

    Code:
    lsattr /etc/profile
    If the file has -i on it, then it will need to be made mutable to be edited for this service:

    Code:
    chattr -i /etc/profile
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
