SECURITY

       pure-quotacheck switches real and effective uids/gids as soon as possible. Root privileges
       are never given back.
       pure-quotacheck refuses to scan directories with uid = 0 (root) or gid = 0 (wheel/root) .
       pure-quotacheck  performs a chroot() call to the home directory. It never traverses parent
       directories.
       pure-quotacheck only scans real files (no socket, no pipe, etc) .
       pure-quotacheck enforces read access on directories to prevent against people doing  chmod
       0 before a quota scan.
       pure-quotacheck  enforces  write  access  on  the  home  directory  to  properly write the
       .ftpquota file.
       pure-quotacheck never scans the same inode/device pair twice.
