I am seeing a very strange behavior on my manjaro system
once in a while (every couple of weeks) the password of my main user does not work any longer spontaneously.
This happens in the cli when trying to execute any command via sudo. First u think of a misspelling naturally, but it isn’t. I can not login with that password neither after this has occurred. The dirty fix is to reset the users password via sudo su && passwd [username]
This is pretty weird and probably should be worrying.
Did anybody encounter such behavior? I can not think of any logical explanation other then a buggy password expiration setting (which I have not set up consciously) which might not prompt you for a new password. If such exists I’d be interested on how to adjust such a preference
If set, sudoers will log when a command spawns a child process and executes a program using the execl(), execle(), execlp(), execv(), execve(), execvp(), or execvpe() library functions. For example, if a shell is run by sudo, the individual commands run via the shell will be logged. This flag is off by default.
