4eviacamloader SUID binary
5-------------------------
6
7eviacamloader is intended for:
8
9i) running eviacam in high priority to improve responsiveness
10ii) restart it in case it crashes
11
12To accomplish i), the 'nice' system call is used which, according to the man page, needs superuser privileges to allow setting priorities below zero (high priorities).
13
14The fragment of which is ran as root is only:
15
16        nice(-11);
17
18After that privileges are revoked, the process forks and runs the eviacam binary (using its absolute path).

20See eviacamloader.c for more details.
