Password echoed at login.
Kernel 220.127.116.11, Slackware 12.0
Being in a text console (VT, that is, the screen with 25 x80 chars), say tty1, I just after booting linux, I logged in as usual, typing my password. What happened just after that astonished me. In Slackware distros, a small quotation from some book is written on screen just after typing the correct password. Well, after typing my password, I could see it split into two halves instead of the quotation.
I think this clearly indicates the precese of a virus in my hard disk. Does it? Regards.
