Hello.

because I received an Python Upgrade Readiness from a Machine with changed email address for admin user but changeme@example.com in the recipient list, I've checked all files in Splunk tree.
I found some entries in js files.
And in splunkd.
bin grep "changeme@example.com" splunk
bin grep "changeme@example.com" splunkd
Binary file splunkd matches

I could also verify it in a fresh uninstalled splunk source

example.com as part of IANA is safe I think, but eMail as a unsafe technology could leak some informations at wrong places.

What is the function of this entry in the splunkd binary file? 

Kind Regards
SierraX
