Filter out rootpw from anaconda reports
Last modified: 2016-11-30 19:45:54 EST
Description of problem:
It would be good if abrt filtered out "rootpw" lines from anaconda reports. I know this is in the ks.cfg and the traceback files, perhaps others.
I think this is fairly important. How can I help?
It is already possible to highlight such lines, but auto-removing is not implemented yet. Would the highlighting be an acceptable solution to you?
It's better than nothing, but it should be auto-removed, especially since the text mode reporter makes it quite hard to find.
Ah, I forgot on the text mode reporter. Hence I am adding a simple auto-remove utility for Anaconda reports in the following pull request:
The pull request also enables highlighting of "rootpw" lines in the GUI reporter.
Vratislav, could you please take a look at that pull request?

Looks good to me.
I opened another pull request for a patch making libreport aware of anaconda-tb:
libreport cannot highlight all forbidden words in that file because the file contains too many false positives.
Would be nice to get this into F21 Final.

I can find this bug report in the log. Has this bug exception or not?
It did, but we exercised discretion not to put it in the final week composes as by that point we're really in 'hair-on-fire changes only' mode. Sorry about that!
21 is done, cleaning blocker process metadata.
libreport-2.3.0-5.fc21 has been pushed to the Fedora 21 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
