      Description

      This is really poor manners.
      I'm not sure if there's a reason for it other than this has not been looked at but please consider:

      • not allowing maxscale to run as the root user
      • if running as the root user, dropping privileges to a different user (maxscale?) that's configured for example in MaxScale.cnf
      • this should pretty much match the behaviour of MySQL or MariaDB, and it prevents possible exploits should something break in the code.

      [note: you need a component: Generic and a Versions: All versions]
