I'm sharing my home directory in Windows 10 with my user's account for WSL - I even set my Windows home to my Linux home with
usermod - and have been getting along great until my most recent update. My
~/.ssh/id_rsa had no problems being utilized before, but a few weeks ago, it started griping about permissions. (I mention the sharing of user home directories because it doesn't seem to help when I did the suggested hack of symbolically linking the Windows SSH directory with my WSL one, since they're the same)
My specific error:
Permissions 0777 for mnt/c/Users/matth/.ssh/id_rsa are too open.
Has anyone dealt with/fixed this issue? I had been on the trail of a fix related to a possible mounting/partition issue after the last Creators update, but my old laptop hosed and I lost the trail.
