There you go. Like Whig said, the file has setuid flag on (emphasis added). See Wikipedia for more about file permissions.

And as for setting up rsh, don't. Don't use rsh unless the environment is totally secure or you absolutely need to save all the CPU time possible. If you need to have password-less login, set up SSH with an RSA/DSA key.

Christianity, noun: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
