I'm a little freaked out

So there I was trying to use Protonvpn and got this

[sudo] password for aura:
You silly, twisted boy you.
[sudo] password for aura:

Is that a feature or a big or have I been pwned?

Ah thats just an insulter. whenever a wrong command is typed, the insulter just spits out some meaningless insults. or even when you type wrong passwords.

Dude it locked like my whole thing. I had to reset Garuda to get back in.

You don't need to reset the whole system to reset the root password, though.
