password hack oops
- Hi all,
I've been looking for a way to hack the root passwd on my hd-160. The
method posted in the files section to run a cgi worked great. It
opened the rights of the passwd file just as advertised. I gained
access to the password file, changed the entry for root, saved and
closed the file, then all rights to /etc were gone. Root used to have
a uid of 100, now all of the files and directories in the / directory
belong to uid 0 gid 0. I cannot access /etc, although I can see by the
directory size that there is something in it. The web interface still
works, I can change anything in it, I just can't change the linux
passwords. We used to do this procedure to change local root passwords
on sun systems. Is there any way to gain access to /etc again?
The password for root was set to ' ', it doesn't allow me to use ' ' as
a login passwd.
