Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 395
Root Login Sercurity Bug?
Last modified: 2016-06-27 11:13:06 EDT
Hello, I recently purchased a copy of RH 5.2, which I'm
quite pleased with, keep up the good work.
I set the root password on my box to "notachance"
I added a user "blake" and set the password to "notachance3"
I can login on with either account (root or blake) using
either password this seems very odd both passwords work
with both accounts? Am I missing the boat on something here?
Thses passwords are 9 and 10 characters, maybe there is a limit of 8
characters and the additional will be ignored?
Actually, notachance is 10 characters and notachance3 is 11 characters
And yes 8 characters appears to be the max, I did not imagine the
number of characters allowed for passwords was that low, that
is odd, oh well.
