On a Debian 10 server, which started as Debian 7 and updated whenever new version came out, I accidentally found these three files:
The backup files
/etc/shadow- and other *- files are present, as they should.
For example, all
passwd files are (same applies for the other two):
$ ll /etc/passwd* -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2,1K Αυγ 13 14:08 /etc/passwd -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2,1K Αυγ 13 14:06 /etc/passwd- -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2,0K Ιουν 20 2015 /etc/passwd.org
Their last access time is somewhere in 2015. Their contents are on par with
/etc/shadow, as they probably were some time in the past – I can see some deleted users. I cannot find any info of such *org files. Does anybody has any idea what are there *org files and what is their use?
