I was using the Mozilla Stumble Toolbar today and just ran into this
site: http://www.fs-driver.org/ which is a windows driver to read and
write EXT2 filesystems.
First, I'm kinda stunned. Has anyone heard of and tried this yet?
Second, It would seem that if you do dual boot, that this actually
opens a security hole. " The current version of the Ext2 file system
driver does not maintain access rights. All users can access all the
Ext2 volumes that a drive letter is created for. For example, if a
drive letter has been created for an Ext2 volume, which is the root
volume of a Linux installation, you can simply read and modify files
such as /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. User names are readable and
passwords of these users can be quite easily cracked and modified!"
Double edged sword, anyone?
