Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:234: 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-2005:234 (sudo).



Charles Morris discovered a vulnerability in sudo versions prior to 1.6.8p12
where, when the perl taint flag is off, sudo does not clear the PERLLIB,
PERL5LIB, and PERL5OPT environment variables, which could permit limited local
users to cause a perl script to include and execute arbitrary library files
that have the same name as library files that included by the script. In
addition, other environment variables have been included in the patch that
remove similar environment variables that could be used in python and ruby,
scripts, among others. The updated packages have been patched to correct this
problem.
