I never give accounts on my personal machines to people; it is possible, I suppose, that the box was compromised; but the compromiser would have to have worked his way in through a LinkSys NAT box that doesnt' forward anything to that box; additionally, no services are listening on it: no sshd, no MTA, no inetd, nothing. I dont' even log in over my LAN...to get to the console or use X, I use a KVM. The only other account in /var/mail was gdm...it was set to user:group 92. Shrug; I don't know....until last night and your email, I had mentally glossed over the entry in the chflags and ls man pages referencing ls -lo...so I don't see any way I could have set those flags. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
