admin account locked ?

Today I found, that the admin account on one of our Digi CM-16 was expired. The expire-field in /etc/shadow was set to 0 and the flag-field (failed login count) was 3.

Could failed login attempts have caused the expiration? In that case I would have expected the account to be locked, not expired.

We are running FW 1.7.0


This is a known problem in 1.7.0 and still an issue in our latest 1.9.0 release.

We have fixed this in our current beta. We plan on releasing this within the next few weeks.
