I need to prevent a Mac user from deleting some files, so my idea is disable the user to sudo to the root user. I tested it in Terminal, it's OK there:
dst49700:salt ttest$ ls -al /etc/salt/111 -rw------- 1 root wheel 0 Apr 20 16:54 /etc/salt/111 dst49700:salt ttest$ rm /etc/salt/111 override rw------- root/wheel for /etc/salt/111? y rm: /etc/salt/111: Permission denied
The staff group's user ttest can not delete this file.
But it's very strange: when I tested it in Finder, I dragged it to the Trash, I needed to enter a password and after that, the file had been moved to Trash.
Why can I move it to Trash without permission? Nobody can delete it, except root, can somebody help me or tell me a better idea to prevent a user from deleting a file?
