Defaults Are Great

Everybody loves defaults. Add some more defaults to your file systems!

chcon -t default_t /

What it does

It labels the root of your file system with the SELinux type default_t.

Why it works

Not much is allowed to read (or execute through) files and directories labeled default_t, since that’s the placeholder for unlabeled files. Most services will fail to start as a result.


  • Properly labeled file systems
  • Fun
