package: usplash severity: important version: 0.3e tags: security Hi, I recently installed usplash on powerpc, together with a crypted partition using dm-crypt. Usplash doesn't give me a prompt to enter the passphrase (which I just filed a wishlist bug about), but whats much worse, when I manually switch to the text console and enter the passphrase, it is shown in clear on the screen and doesnt work. When switching to the text console before the passphrase is prompted, it works. I filed this bug as important because of these two issues together: it breaks functionality and additional has the potential to leak a probably very complicated passphrase. If it just wouldn't work, I would have used normal severity. regards, Holger P.S.: I'm sorry to be so unspecific, I've done this install more than two weeks ago and forgot to file the bugreport.
