Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:036: 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 SUSE-SA:2005:036 (sudo).


Sudo(8) permits the execution of commands as another user and gives the
administrator more flexibility than su(1).
A race condition in the pathname handling of sudo may permit a local user
to execute arbitrary commands. To exploit this bug some conditions need
to be fulfilled. The attacking user needs to be listed in the sudoers file,
he is able to create symbolic links in the filesystem, and a ALL alias-
command needs to follow the attackers entry.
