    If "Last login:" is not displayed, is that fishy? Is it a sure
    indication that a cracker was there and cleaned up his tracks?


    When I connect via ssh to my linux server it always displays Last login:
    <date> from <host>

    Today I received a suspiciously looking email from my server about an
    unexpected restart of Apache, so I logged in and there was no "Last
    login:" information.

    Of course when I logged in again, "Last login:" information was there
    just fine.
