Server :: Create Backdoor Account To Use To Get In If Divulge Root Password

Nov 23, 2010

I have a Debian VPS webserver running a forum, and I'm currently looking for a secondary tech-admin. Since they'll have to have the root password for the server, I'm looking for a way to create a backdoor account that I can use to get in if they divulge the root password, or go crazy and lock me out. Is there a way to do it?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to log into a server with a particular account. Let's say I don't know the password for that account. Can I do this using ssh? I am wondering if it is possible to do it in one command, instead of logging in as root and running su.

Debian :: Use Same Password For Root And Regular Account?

Jul 7, 2009

I first started using Ubuntu and I liked the sudo facility because I didn't need to remember two passwords, so when I installed Debian I wrote the same password for the limited and the root account. Is this very bad for security? I mean can a program started from my regular account immediately become root or something?

Ubuntu Security :: SSH Keys - Can I Create With Root Account

Aug 25, 2010

Can i login to my server using my root account and create a public+private key for one of my users and then manually paste it into his authorized_keys file and give him the private key?

The user im giving it to has a chrooted FTP account...

Is it still ok that i used the root account to create it? He is not going to have root access or nothing is he? This is not a security breach in any way is it?

The user doesn't have shell access to create their own so this is the only way i can think of doing it...

Also what access should the user have to their .ssh folder + the authorized_keys file...?

Are they allowed to read the key? What about write?

Server :: Fedora Sending Mails From Root With Non-root Account?

Jul 14, 2011

I've started to get emails that would typically come from [URL] as [URL]. These emails come from services that send out emails (backup programs) directly, or from cronjobs. I've logged in as the non-root account and either sudo su - or su - to root and the restart the service at one point or another. If I login directly as root and bounce the service or cron the emails come across as from root. I don't see anything in my environment variables after I su to indicate what would cause this. I'm not sure where else to look? A pam setting? This seems to have happened between Fedora 10 and 14 (did a bunch of overdue upgrades recently) I've only got Fedora so I don't have anything to compare to. In Fedora 10 I did not have this problem.

Is that correct?

Server :: Forward Root Mail To External Account Requiring Smtp Authentication?

Nov 3, 2010

I have one Centos Server and I want to forward root mail to 1 external account: [URL] I installed sendmail and created /root/.forward with this content: [URL] and I sent a test mail with this command: /usr/sbin/sendmail root <prueba.txt But nothing was forwarded.

After that I ran the same command with the verbose option:

/usr/sbin/sendmail -v root <prueba.txt

And this is the output:

root... Connecting to [127.0.0.1] via relay...

220 localhost.localdomain ESMTP Sendmail 8.13.8/8.13.8; Wed, 3 Nov 2010 21:09:39 -0600
>>> EHLO localhost.localdomain
250-localhost.localdomain Hello myfriend [127.0.0.1], pleased to meet you
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES

[code]....

For some reason sendmail tried to connect to example.com smtp server and couldn't reach it. I am sure this is because the smtp server for example.com domain is not example.com is mail.example.com. Besides mail.example.com requires authentication, username , password and the smtp port is not the default 25 is 9999. configure sendmail to forward root mail to a smtp server that requires authentication, username, password with a not the default 25 port?

Server :: RHEL - Not Allowed To Have The Root Password

Dec 12, 2010

I have a server with 2 hard drives in raid for RHEL and 16 harddrives in raid 10 for storage. I was not allowed to have the root password just in case because "we don't give root password". A few days ago it crashed asking for root password for maintenance and had to restore the system to factory settings losing all user settings and updates (wich I paid for every year).

I'm not a linux guru but i can mount the system with a live cd, edit /etc/shadow and delete the root password but what I don't know is the consequence of deleting the root password. Can something go wrong after that? Can it have boot problems or something else? Can they set traps to prevent this?

Server is not connected to internet and it will never be.
