Maybe not the best place to ask this, but... My periodic root-kit scan flags
two files that I know are very likely hard linked via Cygwin as file system
discrepancies. I'm not concerned; just curious as to how it's done.
Actually, come to think of it, Cygwin itself must implement a filesystem
layer to work with these hard links, which makes it a potential security
hole. For now, though, I'm satisfied that the links are legit
(arm-elf-c++.exe and arm-elf-gcc-3.40.0-macraigor1). How careful should I be
about Cygwin installations?
