This is a strange one, I have a bunch of PC's all running Lubuntu. Using the ISO I got off the web I built an Asus X101CH (named X101) from scratch all went well. This is my test / play machine.

As all went well I decided to upgrade my main office desktop, a Dell E4300 called "Queeg", this followed the upgrade process from 120.10 to 13.04 with no dramas ... until it was rebooted and presented itself as X101 and not Queeg ............ I had to log on using the X101 credentials not Queeg's!

Doing a shutsown / start it comes up as "Queeg" then rebooting it appears as "X101".

From a security perspective how on earth did my profiles jump machines? The are on the same LAN yes but one was built from an ISO the other upgraded from 12.10, my only explanation is that X101's credentials were stored in "Ubuntu Land" for what ever reason snd during the rebuild of Queeg got used by mistake ... perhaps same NAT address to outside world?

.../also posted in Security over at Ubuntu Forums
