What's new in Sudo 1.8.27

  • On HP-UX, sudo will now update the utmps file when running a command in a pseudo-tty. Previously, only the utmp and utmpx files were updated.
  • Nanosecond precision file time stamps are now supported in HP-UX.
  • Fixes and clarifications to the sudo plugin documentation.
  • The sudo manuals no longer require extensive post-processing to hide system-specific features. Conditionals in the roff source are now used instead. This fixes corruption of the sudo manual on systems without BSD login classes. Bug 861.
  • If an I/O logging plugin is configured but the plugin does not actually log any I/O, sudo will no longer force the command to be run in a pseudo-tty.
  • The fix for bug 843 in sudo 1.8.24 was incomplete. If the user's password was expired or needed to be updated, but no sudo password was required, the PAM handle was freed too early, resulting in a failure when processing PAM session modules.
  • In visudo, it is now possible to specify the path to sudoers without using the -f option. Bug 864.
  • Fixed a bug introduced in sudo 1.8.22 where the utmp (or utmpx) file would not be updated when a command was run in a pseudo-tty. Bug 865.
  • Sudo now sets the silent flag when opening the PAM session except when running a shell via "sudo -s" or "sudo -i". This prevents the pam_lastlog module from printing the last login information for each sudo command. Bug 867.
  • Fixed the default AIX hard resource limit for the maximum number of files a user may have open. If no hard limit for "nofiles" is explicitly set in /etc/security/limits, the default should be "unlimited". Previously, the default hard limit was 8196.
