#196 closed defect (fixed)

Better error-handling for unreadable encryption key files

Reported by: rjl Owned by: dmorton
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0.2
Component: amavisd-maia Version: 1.0.0 RC5
Severity: normal Keywords: blowfish encryption permissions


If the Blowfish key file (typically blowfish.key) is present but unreadable (e.g. for permissions reasons), amavisd-maia ends up using a null key by mistake. The read_config() portion of amavisd-maia needs to be amended to undefine $key_file in that situation to disable encryption, and log a warning message.

I have had $key_file = ""; forever and no problem... commenting out the

line is ok too.

However, a missing key file is probably something that should be fatal, so I'm adding a die() to the config code. If encryption is truly needed, then we should not proceed any further.

[1132] made fatal error if file cannot open, and changed default value to

be commented out.
