Log Message:
updating to the latest and greatest (and less a bunch of security
relevant bugs) version:

Major changes between version 1.7.4p3 and 1.7.4p4:

    * A potential security issue has been fixed with respect to the
      handling of sudo's -g command line option when -u is also
      specified. The flaw may allow an attacker to run commands as a
      user that is not authorized by the sudoers file.
    * A bug has been fixed where "sudo -l" output was incomplete if
      multiple sudoers sources were defined in nsswitch.conf and there
      was an error querying one of the sources.
    * The log_input, log_output, and use_pty sudoers options now work
      correctly on AIX. Previously, sudo would hang if they were
    * Fixed "make install" when sudo is built in a directory other
      than the directory that holds the sources.
    * The runas_default sudoers setting now works properly in a
      per-command Defaults line.
    * Suspending and resuming the bash shell when PAM is in use now
      works properly. The SIGCONT signal was not being propagated to
      the child process.

Major changes between version 1.7.4p2 and 1.7.4p3:

    * A bug has been fixed where duplicate HOME environment variables
      could be set when the env_reset setting was disabled and the
      always_set_home setting was enabled in sudoers.
    * The value of sysconfdir is now substituted into the path to the
      sudoers.d directory in the installed sudoers file.
    * Fixed compilation problems on Irix and other platforms.
    * If multiple PAM "auth" actions are specified and the user enters
      ^C at the password prompt, sudo will now abort any subsequent
      "auth" actions. Previously it was necessary to enter ^C once for
      each "auth" action.

Major changes between version 1.7.4p1 and 1.7.4p2:

    * Fixed a bug where sudo could spin in a cpu loop waiting for the
      child process.
    * Packaging fixes for sudo.pp to better handle patchlevels.

Major changes between version 1.7.4 and 1.7.4p1:

    * Fix a bug introduced in sudo 1.7.3 that prevented the -k and -K
      options from functioning when the tty_tickets sudoers option was
    * Sudo no longer prints a warning when the -k or -K options are
      specified and the ticket file does not exist.
    * Changes to the configure script to enable cross-compilation of

Major changes between version 1.7.3 and 1.7.4:

    * Sudoedit will now preserve the file extension in the name of the
      temporary file being edited. The extension is used by some
      editors (such as emacs) to choose the editing mode.
    * Time stamp files have moved from /var/run/sudo to either
      /var/db/sudo, /var/lib/sudo or /var/adm/sudo. The directories
      are checked for existence in that order. This prevents users
      from receiving the sudo lecture every time the system reboots.
      Time stamp files older than the boot time are ignored on systems
      where it is possible to determine this.
    * Ancillary documentation (README files, LICENSE, etc) is now
      installed in a sudo documentation directory.
    * Sudo now recognizes "tls_cacert" as an alias for "tls_cacertfile"
      in ldap.conf.
    * Defaults settings that are tied to a user, host or command may
      now include the negation operator. For example:
          Defaults:!millert lecture
      will match any user but millert.
    * The default PATH environment variable, used when no PATH variable
      exists, now includes /usr/sbin and /sbin.
    * Sudo now uses polypkg for cross-platform packing.
    * On Linux, sudo will now restore the nproc resource limit before
      executing a command, unless the limit appears to have been
      modified by pam_limits. This avoids a problem with bash scripts
      that open more than 32 descriptors on SuSE Linux, where
      sysconf(_SC_CHILD_MAX) will return -1 when RLIMIT_NPROC is set
      to RLIMIT_UNLIMITED (-1).
    * Visudo will now treat an unrecognized Defaults entry as a parse
      error (sudo will warn but still run).
    * The HOME and MAIL environment variables are now reset based on
      the target user's password database entry when the env_reset
      sudoers option is enabled (which is the case in the default
      configuration). Users wishing to preserve the original values
      should use a sudoers entry like:
          Defaults env_keep += HOME
      to preserve the old value of HOME and
          Defaults env_keep += MAIL
      to preserve the old value of MAIL.
    * The tty_tickets option is now on by default.
    * Fixed a problem in the restoration of the AIX authdb registry
    * If PAM is in use, wait until the process has finished before
      closing the PAM session.
    * Fixed "sudo -i -u user" where user has no shell listed in the
      password database.
    * When logging I/O, sudo now handles pty read/write returning ENXIO,
      as seen on FreeBSD when the login session has been killed.
    * Sudo now performs I/O logging in the C locale. This avoids
      locale-related issues when parsing floating point numbers in the
      timing file.
    * Added support for Ubuntu-style admin flag dot files.

Major changes between version 1.7.2p8 and 1.7.3:

    * Support for logging a command's input and output as well as the
      ability to replay sessions. For more information, see the
      documentation for the log_input and log_output Defaults options
      in the sudoers manual. Also see the sudoreplay manual for
      information on replaying I/O log sessions.
    * The use_pty sudoers option can be used to force a command to be
      run in a pseudo-pty, even when I/O logging is not enabled.
    * On some systems, sudo can now detect when a user has logged out
      and back in again when tty-based time stamps are in use.
      Supported systems include Solaris systems with the devices file
      system, Mac OS X, and Linux systems with the devpts filesystem
      (pseudo-ttys only).
    * On AIX systems, the registry setting in /etc/security/user is
      now taken into account when looking up users and groups.
      Sudo now applies the correct the user and group ids when running
      a command as a user whose account details come from a different
      source (e.g. LDAP or DCE vs. local files).
    * Support for multiple sudoers_base and uri entries in ldap.conf.
      When multiple entries are listed, sudo will try each one in the
      order in which they are specified.
    * Sudo's SELinux support should now function correctly when running
      commands as a non-root user and when one of stdin, stdout or stderr
      is not a terminal.
    * Sudo will now use the Linux audit system with configure with the
      --with-linux-audit flag.
    * Sudo now uses mbr_check_membership() on systems that support it
      to determine group membership. Currently, only Darwin (Mac OS X)
      supports this.
    * When the tty_tickets sudoers option is enabled but there is no
      terminal device, sudo will no longer use or create a tty-based
      ticket file. Previously, sudo would use a tty name of "unknown".
      As a consequence, if a user has no terminal device, sudo will now
      always prompt for a password.
    * The passwd_timeout and timestamp_timeout options may now be
      specified as floating point numbers for more granular timeout
    * Negating the fqdn option in sudoers now works correctly when sudo
      is configured with the --with-fqdn option. In previous versions
      of sudo the fqdn was set before sudoers was parsed.
