	. . . some notes I have added to expand on some of these
	points. . . .

	Run the "strings" program on your /bin/login program.  If you
	find any of the following strings in the output, your system
	has been compromised:  OURPW   knaboj knaobj

I assume this is coincidence, but 'knaboj' is the esperanto word for
'children'.
