comment:1 by Tim Tassonis, 4 months ago

  • Fixed a sudo_sendlog compilation problem with the AIX xlC compiler.
  • Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.9.4 where the --disable-root-mailer configure option had no effect.
  • Added a --disable-leaks configure option that avoids some memory leaks on exit that would otherwise occur. This is intended to be used with development tools that measure memory leaks. It is not safe to use in production at this time.
  • Plugged some memory leaks identified by oss-fuzz and ASAN.
  • Fixed the handling of sudoOptions for an LDAP sudoRole that contains multiple sudoCommands. Previously, some of the options would only be applied to the first sudoCommand.
  • Fixed a potential out of bounds read in the parsing of NOTBEFORE and NOTAFTER sudoers command options (and their LDAP equivalents).
  • The parser used for reading I/O log JSON files is now more resilient when processing invalid JSON.
  • Fixed typos that prevented make uninstall from working. GitHub issue #87.
  • Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.9.4 where the last line in a sudoers file might not have a terminating NUL character added if no newline was present.
  • Integrated oss-fuzz and LLVM's libFuzzer with sudo. The new --enable-fuzzer configure option can be combined with the --enable-sanitizer option to build sudo with fuzzing support. Multiple fuzz targets are available for fuzzing different parts of sudo. Fuzzers are built and tested via make fuzz or as part of make check (even when sudo is not built with fuzzing support). Fuzzing support currently requires the LLVM clang compiler (not gcc).
  • Fixed the --enable-static-sudoers configure option. GitHub issue #92.
  • Fixed a potential out of bounds read sudo when is run by a user with more groups than the value of max_groups in sudo.conf.
  • Added an admin_flag sudoers option to make the use of the ~/.sudo_as_admin_successful file configurable on systems where sudo is build with the --enable-admin-flag configure option. This mostly affects Ubuntu and its derivatives. GitHub issue #56.
  • The max_groups setting in sudo.conf is now limited to 1024. This setting is obsolete and should no longer be needed.
  • Fixed a bug in the tilde expansion of CHROOT=dir and CWD=dir sudoers command options. A path ~/foo was expanded to /home/userfoo instead of /home/user/foo. This also affects the runchroot and runcwd Defaults settings.
  • Fixed a bug on systems without a native getdelim(3) function where very long lines could cause parsing of the sudoers file to end prematurely. Bug #960.
  • Fixed a potential integer overflow when converting the timestamp_timeout and passwd_timeout sudoers settings to a timespec struct.
  • The default for the group_source setting in sudo.conf is now dynamic on macOS. Recent versions of macOS do not reliably return all of a user's non-local groups via getgroups(2), even when _DARWIN_UNLIMITED_GETGROUPS is defined. Bug #946.
  • Fixed a potential use-after-free in the PAM conversation function. Bug #967.
  • Fixed potential redefinition of sys/stat.h macros in sudo_compat.h. Bug #968.

comment:4 by Tim Tassonis, 4 months ago

Is it ok if I fix this tomorrow? It only seems to be a fix for an error message:

  • Fixed a regression introduced in sudo 1.9.6 that resulted in an error message instead of a usage message when sudo is run with no arguments.

comment:5 by Douglas R. Reno, 4 months ago

Oh yeah, it definitely should be!

I just wanted to make sure that you knew that there was a new version :)

I think icewm is out of date too (#14720)
