Re: /etc/passwd ?

most of them are relics of software that you probably dont need,but be carefully what account you erase. better comment them out.you can put a /etc/NOSHELL instead of /bin/sh or even /bin/false and they won't be able to login into the machine no more..

I was wandering if I edited my /etc/passwd file and replaced all the /bin/sh to /bin/false , will that break anything? What Im seeing is accounts like lp, games, uucp, proxy, postgres, and a slew of others that I dont use.

Thanks in advance Debian Guruz!
