Crypt problem

Post by npk06 » 2014/10/15 16:52:42


I'm not sure if it's a bug or not but I filled in a report in the bug tracker regarding crypt functions on CentOS7...

In short, the problem is when trying to crypt a password with a salt starting with a $

It worked on CentOS6 but it seems it does not work anymore on CentOS7... Don't know if it was a bug on CentOS6 corected on CentOS7 or if it's a new bug...

Could someone with more knowledge on this matter than I do have :

- confirm my statement
- maybe give some kind of advice on how to workaround this issue ?

Thank you very much and sorry for my english

Perhaps you could show us some simplified example code which exhibits this problem?
