I was adding users recently, using pdbedit from samba as well, and setting
the permissions of their home directories.
I tried to login and was getting login: /bin/ksh permission denied
It took me a while (root login from console worked) but I saw the
(I may have left some out - this fs from membory - but the result was that
user logins wouldn't work)
Were all set with perms 700. I added the x bit for users and it worked.
My question is: what would have done something like that? I certainly
didn't manually type the permissions of all the binary directories by hand,
and I was oinly modifying users home directories.
Is there some kind of automatic procedure for this (ie. system function)?
Or should I be worried about possible intrusions? This just "happened"
