I've just released a new version of the audit daemon. It can be
downloaded from http://people.redhat.com/sgrubb/audit. It will also be
in rawhide soon. The ChangeLog is:
- In auditd, flush uid/gid caches when user/group added/deleted/modified
- Fixed various issues when dealing with corrupted logs
- In auditd, check if log_file is valid before closing handle
I usually do not make a release this quick after doing one. But there was an
issue (209) reported on github that I think merits an immediate release. The
issue is that if you create, delete, and create a new user with a new name,
auditd may have stale cache entries for the older user.
If you use the enriched format (default setting), then this old association
can get added to the record. That can cause ausearch to report actions
attributed to the old user name. Normally people don't delete and create
users quickly. By design, the cache is only 19 entries long and flushes the
least recently used.
Please test audit-3.0.5 carefully - 3.0.4 had big changes.
Please let me know if you run across any problems with this release.
