Description Kurt Seifried 2013-05-14 01:19:34 EDT
Matthew Miller (mattdm@redhat.com) reports:

From the kickstart documentation, "rootpw --lock" should result in a locked root password.

In testing (on Fedora 19), it does nothing at all. 

`passwd -l root` in %post is a workaround, but shouldn't be necessary.
Comment 1 Kurt Seifried 2013-05-15 02:53:31 EDT
appliance-creator (in the RPM appliance-tools) depends upon livecd-tools which contains contains the script imgcreate/kickstart.py that that actually handles configuration of the root password.
Comment 4 Kurt Seifried 2013-05-17 15:19:28 EDT
CVE duplicate of CVE-2013-2069, merged all content/trackers/etc into there.
