Then I found that the file /etc/pam.d/sshd was installed world writable and voila! ... the device was mine!
Next I installed a simple PHP file manager that enabled me to edit files via the web browser.
I changed the file /etc/pam.d/sshd as follows:
- comment out all lines that begin with 'auth'
- add the line: auth required pam_permit.so
Could you please provide more details about this step?
I downloaded the PHP file manager; how can I configure it to browse the files above the web directory?
