sudo allows a system administrator to give users the ability to run
commands as other users.
The command matching functionality does not properly handle when a file
in the current working directory has the same name as a pseudo-command
in the sudoers file and the PATH contains an entry for ".".
<impact type="high">
A local attacker with the permission to run sudoedit could, under
certain circumstances, execute arbitrary commands as whichever user he
has permission to run sudoedit as, typically root.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-admin/sudo-1.7.2_p6&quot;</code>
