Unix Tip #4546- August 22, 2013

COLLECTING FILES


NOTE: Depending on how the command is used, an
admin with root can abuse their privileges.

If there are similar files on a system and you wish
to collect the contents of those files (possibly
for security reasons) the following command
will search a system for a filename and output
the contents into a file to be viewed.

# find / -name .rhosts -perm -004 -print > rhosts 2>e &

Another use was brought up that one could
learn what other commands users use. They
may have thought of some tricks you may not have:

# find / -name .bash_history -perm -004 -print >o 2>e &


NOTE: All tips provided are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Tips are submitted by various unix admins around the globe. UGU suggest you read and test each tip in a non-volitile environment before placing into production.
