Critical Flaw In Ubuntu 5.10

Recommended Posts

The installer for Ubuntu 5.10 uses a configuration system that logs your answers, unfortunately including the plaintext root password (if you set one) and plaintext password for your first user (who has SUDO access and can become root).

Run your updates NOW! The affected packages are base-config, login, and passwd.
