DescriptionAnaconda 21.48.22.121-1

If you are using anaconda text user interface during a CentOS installation, if you set
~&HFih)TA6HC"cFCx/554C3y:
as root password, it will instantly crash. Moreover you will be kicked out your SSH session running on host machine
Steps To ReproduceThis is the procedure I followed
I connect to the host machine with SSH
I start the installation of the CentOS virtual machine with the following script

virt-install \
--name foo \
--ram 600 \
--disk path=/dev/foo \
--vcpus 2 \
--os-type linux \
--os-variant centos7.0 \
--network bridge=foo \
--graphics none \
--console pty,target_type=serial \
--location=/opt/CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-1708.iso \
--extra-args 'console=ttyS0,115200n8 serial, rd.debug'

then I followed the screen instructions
