Re: [suse-security] Why is passwd truncating passwords

What does your pam_unix2.conf says in the password line? I have md5 instead of blowfish on both files and they don't get truncated...

Following is in /etc/security/pam_pwcheck.conf

password:       blowfish nullok

Manual says it will truncate at 97 or so chars.

So why does passwd truncate at 8?????

Verified on 2 systems, and seen by others.
