<vulnerable range="lt">1.8.5</vulnerable>
<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>When the Sudo env_reset option is disabled (it is enabled by default),
certain environment variables are not blacklisted as expected.
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker, authorized to run commands using sudo, can use this
flaw to execute arbitrary code or escalate his privileges.
<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-1.8.5"
