Which user can override file permissions on a Linux computer?

  • any user that has ‘group’ permission to the file
  • only the creator of the file
  • any user that has ‘other’ permission to the file
  • root user

Explanation: A user has as much rights to a file as the file permissions allow. The only user that can override file permission on a Linux computer is the root user. Because the root user has the power to override file permissions, the root user can write to any file.
