----- Original Message ----- From: "Elvedin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>That resolved it, thank you very much. I really have no clue why this came up since I haven't changed any permissions at all in /usr/bin or anything passwd related before this. If only my setuid logs were set to keep logs from the beginning instead of for today and yesterday...

644 should be the proper permission on /etc/pwd.db. And is
/usr/bin/passwd still setuid root?
drwxr-xr-x 17 root wheel - 2048 Mar 21 21:57 etc -rwxr--r-- 1 root wheel - 40960 Mar 21 21:57 pwd.db -rwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel - 32824 Oct 27 09:31 passwd
I didn't change passwd or anything related to it at all ...
Well, something changed alright. As I expected, your passwd no longer seems to be setuid root! Like so:
-r-sr-xr-x 1 root wheel 32504 Oct 9 2002 /usr/bin/passwd
If it is not setuid root, regular users can, obviously, no longer can change their own passwords. Change it back:
chmod u+s /usr/bin/passwd
That will do it. It might be of interest, though, to figure out why this change occured.
