<p>sudo allows a system administrator to give users the ability to run
commands as other users. Access to commands may also be granted on a
range to hosts.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in sudo:</p>
<li>sudo does not correctly validate the controlling terminal on a system
without /proc or when the tty_tickets option is enabled.
<li>sudo does not properly handle the clock when it is set to the epoch.</li>
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker with sudo privileges could connect to the stdin,
stdout, and stderr of the terminal of a user who has authenticated with
sudo, allowing the attacker to hijack the authorization of the other
user. Additionally, a local or physically proximate attacker could set
the system clock to the epoch, bypassing time restrictions on sudo
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-admin/sudo-1.8.6_p7"
