"After the new system booted, I realized that at no point during
the install did it prompt me to add a new user. I logged in with
myah/myah again, and it worked. The root password was still myah
also, and using sudo automatically granted access to the myah
account without a password. Needless to say, this is an incredible
security risk and a very bad practice for distributions. I located
the Myah System Settings manager under System Tools and used it to
delete the myah user and add my own user. Like most applications,
it hid the password for the new user as I typed it, replacing
characters with asterisks. However, after clicking add, in full
view plain text popped up on the screen saying "User
username/password has been added to your system" (but with my
actual user/pass displayed)."
