Sudosh version 1.3.4 is now available.
(freshmeat is slow on file releases; sf is always current)
Major changes since Sudosh version 1.3.2:
o Corrected major security hole in the SHELL environment variable.
I correctly set the (char *) shell that was cross-referenced with
/etc/shells, but during the prepchild I was still using the old
SHELL environment variable.
I went a further step and used the execle() syscall with an empty
(char *) so that shell doesn't inherit any environment variables
from the calling user.
