View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to Override

August 1st, 2012, 12:39 PM
Hello, I am using a college-mac os x laptop. I was doing sudo commands and all of a sudden I got a message in terminal from the computer saying something like ," overide with admin" . I made a mistake and tried overriding with my school password. Next it said, "This incident will be reported."

My question is , reported to who?

Don't worry about it! As far as I know, it is a system message that pops up by default when you type the wrong password (and/or when you are not in the sudoers list)...it will probably not be "reported" to anyone.
