sudo allows a system administrator to give users the ability to
run commands as other users.
The sudoers file is used to define the actions sudo users are
permitted to perform. Charles Morris discovered that a specific layout
of the sudoers file could cause the results of an internal check to be
clobbered, leaving sudo vulnerable to a race condition.
<impact type="normal">
Successful exploitation would permit a local sudo user to execute
arbitrary commands as another user.
Reorder the sudoers file using the visudo utility to ensure the
'ALL' pseudo-command precedes other command definitions.
All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-admin/sudo-1.6.8_p9&quot;</code>
