root to ahab?
I have a question on whether a certain idea which I had would have negative
implications on the system or whether it is just... neutral, what I so far
suppose. I did the following command to change root's login name to the
usermod -l ahab root
... and it worked. - Frankly speaking, I saw no change at all, only that root
was now ahab. Is this a good idea? - I mean, if someone attacks your system
from the outside, he would this way not even know which account he wants; you
could infact install a totally harmless user named "root", not even member of
wheel, and thus guide everyone into it. I am not very well-versed in these
matters, it was just a funny idea... but if it is a bad one, please tell me.
