sendmail warning (error??)

Post by sfantul » Tue Sep 05, 2006 8:42 pm

listener 451 4.0.0 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 1702: Xbav: local socket name /home/openemm/var/run/bav.sock unsafe: World writable directory

Is any part of the path world writable? Please check

/
/home
/home/openemm
/home/openemm/var

for access permissions.
