Description

New minor version.

Release notes for 2.61 2021-11-20 22:20:04 -0800

  • Better error handling of the numerical arguments for capsh and setcap.
  • Fix executable mode for all of the .so files. There were two situations where this was failing (with a hard to debug SIGSEGV inside libc). Solution related to stack alignment and use of SSE instructions:
  • glibc and the 32-bit x86 mode
  • musl runtime library for 64-bit x86 code
  • Added an example of a shared library object with its own file capability.
    • It demonstrates how to give a shared library a file capability and offer it as a linkable privileged API service to an otherwise unprivileged binary.
  • Fix the top-level include for Make.Rules in the contrib/sucap example application
  • Add support for running constructors at libcap.so start up time when running as stand alone binary.
    • This enables the binary executable to print out some dynamically generated content when given the --summary argument.
