I was checking the content of
/Applications and I saw that some directory are owned by
root and some are owned by
$ cd /Applications $ ls -l $ drwxr-xr-x 3 myUser admin 96 Sep 1 11:30 myApp $ drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 96 Sep 1 11:30 myOtherApp
Are they any security implications of having an user owned directory in
Maybe I am wrong but if the directory is not root owned, then any script can just change its content and swap the binary for example. Same for any directory in
Or does macOS have an integrity protection for that?
