I just installed an application that has the bad habit of automatically scanning all my folders for files to edit.
The app has no available options to disable this behavior. I cannot just remove read/list permissions for those files because the app runs with my user permissions, and I still want other applications to be able to access them.
Is there a security mechanism to prevent the application from being able to read some folders? I tried using apparmor, but since it is "default deny" there doesn't seem to be a way to say "allow the app to do everything it wants EXCEPT access these files".
