Why on God's green earth was the password ever written to a file in
the first place?!?!?? I use ubuntu because it's "easy," not expecting
it to be ultra secure, but this is ridiculous. To compound the
problem the explanation given is awful... "since these files were
world-readable" should have been, "some dumbass wrote code that wrote
clear text passwords to disk"--the readability of the files is
irrelevant. I'm switching distros ASAP, there's no way I can trust
ubuntu after this.
Whatever the reason, no matter how justified (and if you've never made a
mistake in your coding life you might be), I'm sorry but there's no need
to be insulting. Been there, done that (repeatedly) and always regretted
it eventually. Take a chill pill and come back tomorrow.
