Ubuntu install passwd in log


https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+bug/34606

  * Tidy up after Malone bug #34606, which left passwords exposed in
    /var/log/installer/cdebconf/questions.dat, by removing those passwords;
    for good measure, make /var/log/installer/cdebconf/* world-unreadable if
    this bug is detected.

Cheers,

Adrien
