Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476312
"Weak Password" dialog displays actual password
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:39:13 EDT
Description of problem:
The "Weak Password" dialog now displays the password itself. Since the person reading it was the one who typed in the password, showing it to them is unnecessary and a security risk. Also, this dialog seems to always pop up, regardless of the password strength.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
