     13    <para>Currently, the <filename class="directory">/tools</filename>
     14    and <filename class="directory">/cross-tools</filename> directories
     15    are owned by the user <emphasis>lfs</emphasis>, a user that
     16    exists only on the host system. Although the <filename
     17    class="directory">/tools</filename> and <filename
     18    class="directory">/cross-tools</filename> directories can be deleted
     19    once the LFS system has been finished, they can be retained to build
     20    additional LFS systems. If the <filename class="directory">/tools</filename>
     21    and <filename class="directory">/cross-tools</filename> directories are
     22    kept as is, the files are owned by a user ID without a corresponding
     23    account. This is dangerous because a user account created later could
     24    get this same user ID and would own the <filename
     25    lass="directory">/tools</filename> directory and all the files therein,
     26    thus exposing these files to possible malicious manipulation.</para>
