Description: ------------ Current Version: File_Passwd-1.1.0 If passwd file contains a existing '#' in the geckos string it will break the passwd file from that point out by ommiting the rest of that line. Example Passwd entry before PEAR interaction: user1:x:123123:123:User_Guy_#1_1231234:/home/user1:/bin/false Example Passwd entry after PEAR interaction: user1:x:123123:123:User_Guy_ This would make any lines after this unusable to the system. Reproduce code: --------------- Manually usermod the passwd file and add a '#' to the comments. Then execute PEAR script to modify another user. At this point, cat'ing the passwd file.. it will be hosed. Expected result: ---------------- Expected the '#' sign to remain within the passwd file. Actual result: -------------- '#' sign is removed.. and all characters after it till the newline.
