Vulnerabilities to bind-libs bind-utils - possible to remove these on webservers

I think the subject says it all. We don't run named. It seems there are chronic issues with bind. Can these packages be removed?

We locally authenticate. I see this:

Removing for dependencies:
bind-utils
ipa-client
sssd
sssd-ad
sssd-ipa

We shouldn't need any of that with local authentication (/etc passwd and /etc/shadow) right?

Re: [CentOS] root .bash_profile?

The following one liner should display root's home directory:

grep -w ^root /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f6

Which finds the line beginning with the word root, and returns the sixth entry (the home directory of that entry).

Hi,

The $home of root is /root, just copy it there.

Nux!
