Debian Jessie Template leaving behind OVH user folder

Hello,

it's fixed, thanks for the feedback.
And I can confirm it didn't have any security impact, as the user has properly been deleted, just the "skeleton" files remained.

Best regards,
Felix

Seems to be a problem with both OVH Kernel template and Default Kernel.

Probably just a not important bug from when they made the template. To ensure it has no security impact, check if /etc/passwd has some OVH user

Just to let staff know, the Debian Jessie installer is leaving behind a /home/OVH folder.

Probably a remnant from the install script?

EDIT: Seems to be only a problem with the OVH kernel version template.
