man 5 passwd will give you your answers if you have your man pages
installed.

security-basics () securityfocus comHi all,

I have a question about passwd file in Linux where when 'x' for a
particular user is deleted from /etc/passwd file, system doesnot ask for
password to log into the system. But when pasword is set again for that
user again, then instead of showing 'x' in /etc/passwd file, MD5 hash of
new password is shown. Why is it so ?


Thanks in advance
