Syslog messages...


From the first time I installed slackware 10.2 the syslog is full with the following message
Code:
Oct 14 01:09:11 storeserver sshd[1377]: error: Could not get shadow information for NOUSER
Oct 14 01:09:14 storeserver sshd[1380]: error: Could not get shadow information for NOUSER

yip, looks like someone's trying to log in.
there should be more info in /var/log/messages.
( look for the date and time you found in the syslog )
