Which user can override file permissions on a Linux computer?
- any user that has ‘group’ permission to the file
- root user
- any user that has ‘other’ permission to the file
- only the creator of the file
Answers Explanation & Hints:
A user has as much rights to a file as the file permissions allow. The only user that can override file permission on a Linux computer is the root user. Because the root user has the power to override file permissions, the root user can write to any file.
