    I was just thinking, any user has access to the /tmp folder on the server, so I just went to test, and I found out that any user (regular or jailed shell) can go in and delete any of my turck mmcache files.

    Couldnt this be a major problem with files like mysql.sock if a user had access to delete it? I havnt tried to see if users have access, but if they did and deleted, they could crash mysql.

    Am I completely wrong here or is there something I can do.
