Ubuntu: Accidentally typed password in username input, any logs to clear?


I have accidentally typed my password in SSH's interactive username prompt. Are there any log files that I should clear?



Search for "Invalid user"


/var/log/btmp contains, in binary form, a log of the details of failed login attempts.

last -f /var/log/btmp will show you the contents of that file, which will likely include your mistake.
