#1808 user is not prompted to enter current password when changing to a new password
Closed: Fixed None Opened 10 years ago by rcritten.


Description of problem:
When changing one's own password, the user should first be prompted to enter his/her current password. 
This will protect the user from having anybody else change it for him/her.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to ipa client machine, as say user1, whose password is say, password1
2.To change password, user1 now runs the command:
ipa passwd

Actual results:
This prompts user1 to enter new password.

Expected results:
Before prompting for new password, it should have prompted user1 to enter current password.
This will ensure that user1 is indeed the person changing his/her own password, and not somebody else.
