oi oi.. i recently installed vmware (the latest release of the workstation
thing) and it crashed once or twice. But never mind that. in /tmp i found
a file called vmware-log.starman. starman being my user on the box. Inside
in this file is my license information and it's chmod is 777. That's kinda
nasty don't ya think? has anyone seen similar things?
