Gradle must not reuse daemon if required privileges aren't matched


(Christo Zietsman) #1

I started a build in a non-elevated command prompt. Some tests fail, because they need elevated privileges.

I then opened an elevated command prompt and started another build. It failed again, because it was now using the daemon which was started by the first run.

Gradle should start a new daemon with elevated privileges in this case and not reuse the previously started daemon.

This can also be a security issue in shared build environments if someone managed to execute some code as elevated which should have been run without elevated privileges.
