Bug - auto/unix incorrectly detects nobody group

July 12, 2011 03:53PM
In auto/unix (line 9 in 1.0.4) the pattern for detecting the nobody group is not anchored properly and will incorrectly detect the group nobody if the nobody user is in one of the listed groups. E.G. if "nagcmd:x:114:nagios,nobody" appears in the file.

This is easily fixed by anchoring the grep regex to the beginning of the line:

if grep ^nobody /etc/group 2>&1 >/dev/null; then
