I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Purdue University. I have a background in Linux, Computer & Network Security, Software Development. I am learning how to build SELinux Policies and hoping to expand my knowledge of hardware and system controls. My goal here is to help users get the correct answers that are also secure answers.

To answer as follows: 1) The email is to keep you from having collisions mostly. If you using properly seeded UUIDs you shouldn't have an issue. 2) Statistically, no.

comment What's the secure way to change UNIX permissions on a harcoded file often?
If an attacker needs root in order to do the attack in #1, then you have other things to worry about. If the attacker gets root assume all hope is lost on that system, because at that point they could install a rootkit or anything else...stop the daemon...etc. You best protection here is to just use SELinux and write a proper policy for what you want to do with context transitions.
