I saw this on this post: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=39020&highlight=hardening

I mean, changing /usr/local/apache/proxy owner from nobody.nobody (as you can see below) to root.root.
drwxr-xr-x 2 nobody nobody 4.0K Sep 4 00:00 proxy/

Isn't that dangerous ? Have anyone tried, will this stop bad guys from that directory ?
I know about mod security, phpsuexec, etc, etc.., I'm just going right to the point, is this good to prevent something ?
