Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 486003
Installer Echoes Password to The World
Last modified: 2009-02-18 05:38:08 EST
Description of problem:
After installing Fedora 11 Alpha and creating a user during firstboot a valid password was rejected and echoed to the world in part of the error window!
What I mean by valid password is a 8 char long password with upper and lower case letters, a digit and a special character.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Alpha.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F11a.
2. Create a user with a valid password.
3. Stun as your valuable password is echoed to the world.
Password rejected and echoed.
Password accepted. Even if not accepted it should *never* be echoed to the world.
To be very frank I think it is outrageous to echo passwords in any occasions.
To be very frank, this is not my bug.
To be very frank, this is already fixed.
