    Third public commit to doas.c: doas grows up. no insults.

    1. 13

      I appreciate that they used strong randomness to pick the insults.

        1. 1

          Clicked. Did not see 4 hard-coded. Disappointed.

    2. 5

      doas in its effort to be a sudo replacement without all the bloat, neglects to implement this.

      It wasn’t neglected at all. Insults are the definition of useless bloat.

        This is what is known as “dry humor”

        1. 2

          Yeah, I thought that was obvious when I was writing it, but apparently not. Clarified my own opinion on it in another comment.

          1. 0

            Touché

          2. 5

            Author here. Agreed, it’s entirely useless. I threw this post together for fun one day a few years ago, and it’s meant entirely as tongue in cheek. I don’t use it myself because it’s pointless, and one extra thing I’d need to set up on a new system for no gain.

          3. 3

            The requirement of typing the password wrong or typing the wrong password is too high a hurdle.

            It should insult every time, so that we can all enjoy these insults.

            1. 2

              Is this a security risk? If you’re using your doas function rather than /usr/bin/doas then anyone who gains access to the current user has permission to modify the function and trivially capture the root password.

              1. 10

                Anyone who gains access to the current user could define their own function and trivially capture the root password.
