I'm trying to push package to openSUSE Factory which contains binaries with suid bit set. openSUSE security team doesn't want to accept the package with such binaries as it can lead to security issue.

These binaries would allow mounting/unmounting, shutdown/reboot/suspend/hibernate, CPU frequency setting for users from desktop environment.

I'm taking the possibility to ask broader audience (without attempt to persuade security team anyhow). What is your opinion? What is your experience? What is your choice?

Your vote has been cast for this poll. Thank you for voting on this poll.

binaries with suid bit set - yes or no?
