Major updates since version 1.4.8:

o Sudosh now calls shells as if they were a login shell. Sudosh
automatically sets the environment variables LOGNAME, USER, TERM,
SHELL and PATH.
o Changes directory to user's HOME directory.
o Changed the way the shell is executed. Added a dash '-' before the
arguement, i.e. -ksh This allows the shell to execute as if it were
a login shell.
o Added a random string to the log files so that non-privileged users
cannot delete their log files.
o Removed tampering code because it was not portable.
o General code cleanup.

Sudosh 1.4.2 now available

February 14th 2005:
Added the -i, --init flag to automatically create the LOGDIR directory. This comes in handy when you need to use sudosh for other users besides root. This way other users have the correct access to LOGDIR.

HPUX and Tru64 Support added to sudosh 1.4.0!

October 25th 2004:
Fixed another major bug in the exec code. This time the
environment was blanked out and caused havic on the new shell.

Added @PERL@ to the sudosh-replay so that Perl is automatically
found and configured.

Added @PACKAGE_NAME@ and @VERSION@ and whatnot to sudosh-replay
so that it can report its version as well.

Added a configuration summary to configure.in

Added full support for the following architectures (thanks HP)... read more

Sudosh version 1.3.4 now available

October 24th 2004:
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 futher step and used the execle() syscall with an empty
(char *) so that shell doesn't inherit any environment variables
from the calling user.

to C.

Major changes since Sudosh version 0.7.0:

o Sudosh has been ported to C because I wanted to take advantage of
pty devices because of their ability to sit between the user's keyboard
and a program, in this case a shell.

o Sudosh only logs keystrokes (command-lines) to syslog... read more
