Release 0.8.14 of nss-pam-ldapd


This is a maintenance update that fixes a number of minor issues most of which were backported from the 0.9 series. Only a few small new features were added. This should be a reasonably stable and well tested release.

A summary of the changes since 0.8.13:

  • implement an -n switch to not daemonise (by Caleb Callaway)
  • increase password value buffer size (by Bersl)
  • fix for pwdLastSet attribute value handling (thanks Joshua Shire)
  • fix buffer overflow on interrupted read that is hard to trigger (thanks John Sullivan)
  • fix a possible crash in the NSS module when retrieving large networks entries (thanks Lukas Slebodnik)
  • avoid more broken pipe errors by using a low timeout when aborting reading requested information from nslcd (thanks John Sullivan)
  • only log broken pipe errors in debugging mode
  • ignore SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 for future compatibility
