Why can I (as standard user) delete a file with permissions set to 000?
I am currently on Lab 32.2, experimenting with umask values. I have set umask = 0777 and then created a file. This file has zero permissions. I was expecting to need root privileges to remove it but I did not. I am curious as to why. I have attached a screen shot showing the commands from the shell.
Thank you for your thoughts.
