rkhunter and I was wanting to check its logs with:
nano outputted this error:
Error reading /home/arthur-dent/.nano_history: Permission denied Press Enter to continue starting nano.
And if I press ENTER I am able to view the file. I have checked the permissions for that file and they are now:
-rw------- 1 root root 12 May 3 20:26 .nano_history
So I guess that I just change ownership back to me? But as I was literally just using
nano, why would the permissions and ownership (possibly, as I do not know what the original ownership was) just suddenly change? Was it because I was just using it with
sudo, if so, it is odd as nothing like this has ever happend before and I use
sudo with it a lot?
