Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:103: sudo

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sudo package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:103 (sudo).



A race condition was discovered in sudo by Charles Morris. This could lead to
the escalation of rights if /etc/sudoers permited a user to execute selected
programs that were then followed by another line containing the pseudo-command
'ALL'. By creating symbolic links at a certain time, that user could execute
arbitrary commands.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
