Red face Interesting "Security" Issue on GRUB 2

Quote:
With GRUB 1.97, if your password was "phoronix", any individual could log-in just entering "p" or "nix" or any other part of the string even just one character. With the just-out GRUB 1.97.1, this issue has been addressed.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
