[[!meta title="Recovering from insecure persistence settings"]]

The persistent volume or a persistence configuration file has insecure
access rights.

This means that an attacker who could run an exploit from inside your
Tails session could corrupt the persistent volume settings. By doing
this, an attacker could possibly gain persistent administrator rights
or install malicious software.

Under normal conditions, this should not happen. This might be
a problem in Tails, so please [[report an
error|doc/first_steps/bug_reporting]].

To enable again your persistent volume, follow the instructions to
[[manually copy your persistent data to a new
17
device|copy]].
