Opened: Jun 12, 2017 Severity: 3-Major
In AWS instances, a file /root/.ssh/bigip.a.k.bak is present which should not be. It is harmless to users other than that it is confusing.
No real impact other than possibly confusion as this file isn't used in this environment. The file does not contain any sensitive data as it's a dangling symlink.
After the first boot, this file should be deleted, but it is not.
No need to workaround as the presence of the file is harmless. Users could manually remove this file if desired.
This file is no longer present which is the correct state.
