When specifying a username for hammer (overriding yml config file) hammer does not prompt for a password and instead errors with "invalid username or password" This causes bash history to contain sensitive information that should be secured.
When -u is specified or -p with no argument hammer should prompt for a password.

Hammer now checks whether the username provided via -u is the same as the one stored in the config file and prompts for a password when they differ.
