    I was reading up on Mac security where one person posted up his "echo $PATH" saying it was "weird." Curious, I checked mine and it came out to be the exact same as his. He claims to be having problems with root kits so just to be sure, can anyone verify if my "echo $PATH" is normal?

    Anshs-Mac:~ anshshukla$ echo $PATH
    /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/texbin:/usr/X11/bin

    Are you running LaTex? That probably explains the texbin path. What exactly is supposed to be weird about it?

    I don't see any problem with that. the texbin is definitely part of LaTeX. The rest + X11 is pretty standard.
