'Root' Password Readable in Clear Text on Ubuntu Breezy

Filed under
Ubuntu

A major, critical bug and possible security threat has been discovered in Ubuntu Breezy. Apparently, the 'root' password (not actually the root password because Ubuntu uses sudo) gets written into the installer's log files in clear text, and can be read by any account on the Ubuntu machine.

Full Blurb.
