Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23066
sensitive information given on cmd-line
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:25 EDT
Although the username should not be secret in most cases, it contains
confidential information at some providers. E.g. the german T-Online builds
the username from the phone-number and a secret, long number (which must be
entered in T-Online's own-application into a veiled password-input field).
So it's not good when giving this username as a cmdline-option to ipppd in
/etc/init.d/isdn, because everybody can see it with `ps'.
Options can be given to ipppd in a configuration file with '-f...', so the
username can be put there.
i have fixed this problem. I will build new version internet-config-0.23 today
Note: in 7.1 beta3 is internet-config a replacement of isdn-config.
