Description Piotr Gackiewicz 2008-07-07 06:48:43 EDT
Description of problem: who does not take group owner of tty into account when determining users' message status Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): coreutils-6.9-17.fc8 [root@fc8d ~]# ls -l /dev/pts* total 0 crw--w---- 1 root root 136, 0 Jul 7 12:37 0 crw--w---- 1 user_a tty 136, 1 Jul 7 12:37 1 crw--w---- 1 root tty 136, 2 Jul 7 12:42 2 [root@fc8d ~]# who -wu user_a + pts/0 Jul 7 11:43 00:05 27269 (hostname.domain) user_a + pts/1 Jul 7 12:31 00:05 15316 (hostname.domain) root + pts/2 Jul 7 12:32 . 15345 (hostname.domain) Actually, user "user_a" on tty /dev/pts/0 has "mesg n" (because of tty group: root). Bug does occur when logged through gdm. "who" should check getgrnam("tty") gr_gid against stat("/dev/...") s_gid or should be setgid tty and check term gid against getegid().
Comment 1 Piotr Gackiewicz 2008-07-07 06:53:06 EDT
Created attachment 311137 [details] Additional check of terminal's group
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2008-07-07 07:18:08 EDT
Thanks for report and patch, as the behaviour is still upstream adding upstream maintainer to cc.
Comment 3 Jim Meyering 2008-07-07 09:56:15 EDT
Thanks. I've raised a portability-related question on the bug-coreutils mailing list: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.coreutils.bugs/14022
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2008-08-07 10:09:35 EDT
coreutils-6.9-18.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
Comment 5 Ondrej Vasik 2008-08-07 10:15:39 EDT
Oops, that's by accident, fix is not included in that update as there is still upstream about portability impact.
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 05:58:24 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 05:38:21 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle. Changing version to '11'. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 12 Kamil Dudka 2010-01-20 10:54:28 EST
Piotr, thanks for the patch! I've added the configure option requested by upstream. The updated patch is now pending review at upsatream mailing-list: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.coreutils.bugs/19680
