Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1032175
"nope" used as a password hash in /etc/shadow
Last modified: 2014-10-22 14:43:18 EDT
Description of problem:
There is a string, considered as a hash of some kind, reading "nope" in the shaddow for root. I think it should rather be "!" to explicitly disable root console login.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. nova boot with root key injected, add floating ip
3. cat /etc/shaddow
4. su cloud-user
su # type nope
4) Login denied which is OK. It should just be made sure the system is not using any default password.
4) Login still denied
