6Note that giving untrusted users root access to chroots is a serious
7security risk!  Although the untrusted user will only have root access
8to files inside the chroot, in practice there are many obvious ways of
9breaking out of the chroot and of disrupting services on the host
10system.  As always, this boils down to trust.  Don't give chroot root
11access to users you would not trust with root access to the host
12system.

14For compatibility with existing tools and scripts, wrapper binaries
15for dchroot and DSA dchroot are provided.
