Well, investigating a bit more turns up that indeed, dumping core in /etc/cron.d is sufficient: cron really doesn't care at all what files are called in /etc/cron.d. OMG. OMG. OMG. Jon, you were right as always.

(But really, cron's security model is *unbelievably* stupid.)

Has this behaviour of cron led to any separate security advisories / fixes yet?
