I operate a server on which I am typically the only ssh user, but I do provide a small number of users ftp access.

Each user has their own home directory. Currently all home directories have read permission set for 'other'. This means if I log in as one user, I can read and even download the contents of other users home directories.

I want to block this read access. What is the best way to do this? Turn off the read bit for 'other'? Or is there some better way?

Thanks: John

What ftp server software are you using?

For example, in proftpd, you simply add this line to /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf:

DefaultRoot ~

and everyone is "jailed" into his own directory.

It also seems the ftp daemon in the base system supports this through /etc/ftpchroot.
If you are using it, read the man pages for ftpd(8) and ftpchroot(5)
