Release Notes: A potential security hole that could affect sites that enable non-root access with sudoscript was fixed. A new feature added "ss -" usage, which is like "su -" and gives the user the shell and environment of the target user.
Release Notes: A major security bug has been fixed. The "-" switch to ss acts like "su -". There are two other bugfixes.
Release Notes: NetBSD platform support has been added. Ports and packages for [Free|Open|Net]BSD are now part of the distribution. The "sudoscripters" group has been renamed "ssers" to accommodate platforms with 8 character group names.
Release Notes: This release supports non-root shells. For example, the Oracle user may now be audited. HP-UX support has been added.
Release Notes: This beta release of sudoscript now allows shells as users other than root. For example, the Oracle account can now be scripted with sudoscript. Also, HP-UX support has been added.
Release Notes: A bug in which sudoshell would lose the race with the logging daemon to install a signal handler has been fixed. Under heavy system load this caused sudoshell to exit prematurely. Documentation cleanups and Linux init script tweaks have been integrated.
Release Notes: A fix a bug that caused the month to be off by one in the log file after August.
Release Notes: A bug that caused sudoscriptd to leave zombie processes during log file rotation has been fixed. Sudoscriptd now sets the name shown in 'ps' to reflect the various subdaemon's functions. (This only works on OSs that support Perl's '$0' hack).
Release Notes: Sudoscript now handles multiple concurrent users. Logfile entries are tagged with the username and PID of the caller. Session startup and shutdown are recorded with syslog, providing a concise record of session actvity that can then be used to grep the main log for particular sessions. There are numerous bugfixes and other feature enhancements courtesy Sudoscript users.
Release Notes: You can use 'script -f' to tell script to flush buffers on Linux. Buffering on the MERGEFIFO has been turned off on all platforms. A log file announcement of the logger daemon has been added. A --datefmt= flag has been added to sudoscriptd, controlling the leading time stamp in the private log file.A bug where ss would only look at the first line of ps output when looking for sudoscriptd has been fixed (it only seemed to be a problem on BSD platforms).
