    In cloud-init, relies on Mersenne Twister for a random password, which
    makes it easier for attackers to predict passwords, because rand_str in
    cloudinit/util.py calls the random.choice function (CVE-2020-8631).
    
    In cloud-init, rand_user_password in cloudinit/config/cc_set_passwords.py
    has a small default pwlen value, which makes it easier for attackers to
    guess passwords (CVE-2020-8632).
