I am running Fedora 16 and just installed Dropbox from their website. After dismissing the successful installer, I received a 'run as root' authentication popup trying to run the command 'sh /tmp/tmp40RGAW'. I am a little suspicious as it doesn't seem to be initiated by an action on my part.
Here are the relevant files:
#!/bin/sh -e cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak && cat /tmp/tmp9nzubR > /etc/fstab && mount -o remount /
# # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sat Dec 31 00:50:09 2011 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk' # See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info # UUID=78208710-cd4b-495d-9ae0-18b4e3f7a7a1 / ext4 defaults,user_xattr 1 1 UUID=17e40587-deb9-424c-83cf-92c51dd9d8a4 swap swap defaults 0 0
Does anybody know what's going on here? Is this something needed by Dropbox?
