Re: All hash prompts look the same

And, as always, the question has to be asked - why did he even have a remote root prompt into a server, rather than using sudo? Especially if it was a production server?

Even at home on my own linux box, I never never use a root prompt, unless I can find no other way of doing it. Just too easy to make a mistake.
