weird group permission... lp?


I'm a little weirded out by this...

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 194 Jan 11 04:02 rpmpkgs.1
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 194 Jan 4 04:02 rpmpkgs.2
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 194 Dec 28 04:02 rpmpkgs.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 194 Dec 21 04:02 rpmpkgs.4
-rw------- 1 root lp 341189 Jan 16 23:42 secure
-rw------- 1 root lp 95624 Dec 22 01:38 secure.1
-rw------- 1 root lp 93654 Dec 15 01:38 secure.2
-rw------- 1 root lp 86820 Dec 8 01:37 secure.3
-rw------- 1 root lp 79925 Dec 1 01:38 secure.4
-rw------- 1 root lp 0 Dec 22 04:02 spooler
-rw------- 1 root lp 0 Dec 15 04:02 spooler.1
-rw------- 1 root lp 0 Dec 8 04:02 spooler.2
-rw------- 1 root lp 0 Dec 1 04:02 spooler.3
-rw------- 1 root lp 0 Nov 24 04:02 spooler.4

um... should I be worried?

Aparently not, because the permisson on the files give not access even fron read on that files, but normally those files permisson are root.root. Check in /etc/groups to see if your lp groups is something like:

lp:x:7:daemon,lp

And check your secure files, that's a little bigger than normal ...
