User from Internet overtaking my Gentoo box !!! / Security !
Linux security breach.
I have a Linux NAT box and was making an
"emerge -u world" on a Gentoo box connected to the Internet trough the NAT box.
Unfortunately I was running the "emerge" with root rights as root.
Well some tough guy from outside broke in, deleted my user, removed me from the wheel group, changed my IP address and my X starting parameters.
Still happy he didn't erase the box.
Is there a posibility to run emerge as a normal user ??
"emerge -u world" as normal user??
