noexec /tmp and /var/tmp

Unread post by faris »

Is it still recommended to make /tmp (and possibly /var/tmp) tmpfs with noexec, nosuid and nodev ?

I remember doing so years and years ago had an adverse effect with Plesk and ASL, but I don't remember what/when/why.
This was AGES ago, mind you.

Hmm....that's good to know. Thanks.

But does anybody actually do it, or not, in a mainly Plesk environment?
