The other day I burned a Chakra Linux iso on a dvd. When I booted into a live session I was able to access all my regular data. In dolphin when clicking on the icon belonging to my
/home/user partition a pop-up asked me for my
sudo password. The password I entered was not my regular
sudo password, but the password that belongs to the live dvd. By default, this password is always
root. Using the default password I was granted access to all partitions where I have stored my data, installed Linux Mint and installed Windows 7.
I consider this to be a serious security breach. What is the point of having a password-protected account when all data can be accessed without the password by using a live dvd? Is this behaviour normal, or is something messed up on my system or is there something wrong with the Chakra distro?
