There is no summary.  I got no responses back.

> My security software reported that the /etc/path_to_inst and
> /etc/path_to_inst.old files changed on an old sparc5 running well-patched
> Solaris 8.  Sure enough, the timestamps on both files were changed.
> However, no one with root access was logged on at the time, nothing was
> going on in root's cron at the time, no patching was going on, and no
> hardware was added or removed.  Since both files are exactly the same
> size and have the same contents, I cannot diff the old and the new file
> to see what might have changed.
> I am at a loss for why these two files might have changed.  Can anyone
> suggest a reason for a change in these files that I have missed?  TIA,
> and I will summarize.
