    Lightbulb backup passwd

    On most systems the passwd file in the etc/ directory is now shadowed. However, I heard somewhere that there was a backup for the encrypted passwd file such as etc/shadow instead of etc/passwd. Is this true, and if so, is there a list that can be obtained of all the possible passwd backup locations for different operating systems? Thanks.

    I don't think so...not that I've heard of anyway...You can google it and see what comes out!
