The following appeared in my latest daily security run output:

        Checking for uids of 0:
        root 0
        toor 0

This is the first time I've seen this message.

I checked /etc/passwd and found this:

        root:*:0:0:Charlie &:/root:/bin/csh
        toor:*:0:0:Bourne-again Superuser:/root:

I am running FreeBSD 4.10 as a gateway/router/firewall with IPFW for a small
home LAN.  

I ran ps -aux and looked for any processes owned by "toor" but didn't find any.

Is this something to be concerned about?  

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but I am still very much a newbie
and trying to learn what I can about security.

Thanks for your patience,
