Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 609832
system-config-users crashes or freezes if large number entered to uid and gid
Last modified: 2010-11-10 16:44:06 EST
Description of problem:
When I enter a large number for UID when creating users (example 4294967296 - which is the maximum number by gui) s-c-users crashes.
When creating a group with very large GID s-c-users freezes.
** ERROR **: lu_value_get_id(): value 4294967296 out of range
/usr/share/system-config-users/system-config-users: line 4: 12766 Aborted (core dumped) /usr/bin/python2 /usr/share/system-config-users/system-config-users.py
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch s-c-users + enter root passwd
2. add user
3. add user name, password and select own UID as 4294967296
VERIFIED as fixed in system-config-users-1.2.100-2.el6:
Maximal value accepted by s-c-users is now 4294967294
