Bug #7688: DHCP client leaks hostname "amnesia"
Resets hostname to the one provided by the DHCP server
I've seen (once, for now) a Tails ISO built from current experimental have its hostname reset to the one provided by the DHCP server:
$ hostname whatever
We don't try that hard to avoid leaking the hostname, so this is an important issue.
#4 Updated by intrigeri about 5 years ago
- Status changed from New to Resolved
- Priority changed from Elevated to High
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Parent task set to #7688
Indeed, this was caused by the changes introduced to fix #7688, and is now resolved in the corresponding branch with commit 4b007f8c.
