Hi Brent,

Long time no hear! Hope you are good.

Why are you asking about this when it is so clearly documented?

Anyway, I have never raised securelevel in any of my production boxen
since I've never had reasons to. There must be reasons for it and I
believe that is what you need to find out, and also find out if your
situation warrants such actions. In most cases, I always thought
securelevel was for the paranoid only, or to create a flame war - the
folks anal about security.
Maybe securelevel should be ported to Windows? :-)
