strange bash login error


Hi,

This started happening recently and I haven't done anything differnet to my system... that I know of lol

I have a RedHat 7.3 Linux box and I was logging in and I got this strange error.

Last login: Mon Aug 11 11:46:18 2003 from <ip address here>
Could not chdir to home directory /home/figment: Permission denied
bash: /home/figment/.bash_profile: Permission denied
bash-2.05a$

I've never seen the bash-2.05a$ before and not really sure why this is happening?

I used the login for a ventrilo server and to run the BX IRC program.

Could I have been hacked or something? I've chmodded and chowned to get it to work again but I am wondering why this is happening in the first place.

There is also a webserver on the machine and it is functioning normally... so is the ventrilo server.

Jusr restore the permisisons on the bash files in your homedir:
chown figment /home/figment/.bash*
chmod 700 /home/figment/.bash*
