The system works

I decided to go the “traditional” route and set root’s shell to “/bin/sh” instead of “/bin/bash” because on old school Unices, root always used the Bourne shell. So I added another user “toor,” the recommended Bourne-Again superuser to use “/bin/bash.” I knew it would trip a script I have running nightly to check for backdoor logins:

********************************************************************************
*                                                                              *
*                ALERT! Login ID toor has uid 0                        *
*                Detected On Date :08/09/12 Time :12:00:03 AM                       *
*                                                                              *
********************************************************************************

I’ll be updating the script to ignore the ‘toor’ login.
