      Description

       

      When processing option value which starts with hyphen/dash like -sec-attr -password1 , exception [1] occurs. If the current token start with dash, it will be processed as an option and therefore this will not be set as a value to the previous option, which will cause [1]. The only way to set such value is to use equals sign like -sec-attr=-password1. In this case the whole token is processed as option=value pair and the correct value will be set.
