comment Ordinary users are able to read /etc/passwd, is this a security hole?
@joechip Current OSes are not designed to hide users from each other. All users can be enumerated in many more ways than /etc/passwd. ls -la /home on Linux, ls -la /Users on MacOS X, dir C:\Users in windows 7, ps -afux in Unix systems. Changing the design choice Ben Voigt alluded to just makes life difficult without changing security.
