Description Hristo Venev 2013-02-06 19:12:34 UTC
It only needs write access to the block device/file. It'd be the same to move dd to sbin because it can be used to modify block devices/files which the user may not have write permission for.

Reproducible: Always

It happens to be upstream's default.
