I've been planning to install a LAMP server for a while now and I've just installed Apache 2.2.4. In it's default configuration file (httpd.conf from source), it states...
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for
# running httpd, as with most system services.
Is there any security risk in leaving the user/group 'deamon'? I'm running Slackware 11.0 and to my knowledge, no other program or files in the distribution uses this user/group.
