Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy.

Gmaingmaingmain03, as you probably now know passwords are not displayed in Ubuntu terminal windows. I'm sorry no one replied to you when you needed help. As what you reported wasn't a bug I'm closing this by changing the status of the report to "Invalid".

Changed in gnome-terminal (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
