sudo allows a system administrator to give users the ability to run
commands as other users.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in sudo:
<li>Glenn Waller and neonsignal reported that sudo does not properly
handle access control of the "sudoedit" pseudo-command
<li>Harald Koenig reported that sudo does not
properly set supplementary groups when using the "runas_default" option
<impact type="high">
A local attacker with privileges to use "sudoedit" or the privilege to
execute commands with the "runas_default" setting enabled could
leverage these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with elevated
CVE-2010-0426: Revoke all "sudoedit" privileges, or use the full path
to sudoedit. CVE-2010-0427: Remove all occurrences of the
"runas_default" setting.
All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-admin/sudo-1.7.2_p4&quot;</code>
