Description jvpurcel 1999-01-11 13:14:40 EST
How do I shut off the pam feature that records the username
in /var/log/messages ?
Here's a sample:
FAILED LOGIN 1 FROM jupiter FOR user1, User not known to the
underlying authentication module.

It would stink if someone slipped and typed in their
password.

This is not conidered a bug because you can either disable this type
of logging in /etc/syslog.conf or in any matter, the /var/log/messages
is only readable by root.
