Release 0.7.19 of nss-pam-ldapd


This is an update for the 0.7 series that includes fixes for a few issues. The changes should be minimal and have mostly been available in the 0.8 branch for some time.

From this point on, the 0.7 series will only get updates for serious (security) issues. Users are encouraged to upgrade the the more up-to-date 0.8 or 0.9 series.

A summary of the changes since 0.7.18:
  • use the more portable EBADF instead of EBADFD (thanks Steven Chamberlain)
  • fix buffer overflow on interrupted read that is hard to trigger (thanks John Sullivan)
  • extra sanity check to ensure not too many file descriptors are open
