Default password is working with Tacacs+ switch

Hello all,

i`ve been facing some issues lately.

we use tacacs+ for our switches to authenticate and authorize. But we noticed that no matter username is, when we type password "cisco" we can log in to switch.

Anyone faced this issue before or know why it is like this?

login as: cisco

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

password:

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

Password:

I believe that the output of show tacacs might be helpful.
