SUMMARY: passwd/shadow entry 'listen'

Everyone says that "*LK*" is the right entry for the password filed,
although "NP" won't hurt.

Gabriel pointed out to check for files in ~listen/.ssh/ because
secure-shell might let someone into the system.

Many thanks go to

Original Question was:

> System: Solaris 2.6
> Tracing a possible breakin, I got suspicious about the user 'listen'.
> What is the correct shadow-entry for the userid 'listen' in Solaris 2.6 ?
> Is it
> listen:*LK*:::::::
> or
> listen:NP:::::::

Signature still lost.
