From the comment, I would say he has a SCSI Zip drive. The same line
could apply to Jaz, an ancient Bernoull, or the like.
The risk I see is does this method let users mount with setuid?
Right, but if he had any other SCSI disks on the system (such as
the disk with /, /usr, /var, etc...), wouldn't this also allow them
to be mounted & unmounted as desired by the user?
Certainly if you're talking about your own laptop or dedicated
desktop machine, the rules can be relaxed somewhat. However, in
general this just seems to be a particularly unsafe practice. That
is, unless I've missed something fundamental?
