Is alternation of log files possible on a Linux console level?
Hello forum reader,
Is it possible for the root user (account) on the console of a Fedora Linux server to alternate any type of log file (pure ascii data), simply by adding and/or removing data in a certain log file?
Can this be done without leaving any piece of evidence or not? Reason why I want to know this, because recently a certain log file was presented in a legal matter and I am not that familiar with Linux and therefore cannot find out if log files have been changed.
Even worse, can the date and time of the log file be set to any time you prefer later on?
