Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote package "sudo" is missing a security patch.

privilege escalation. If /etc/sudoers permited a user the execution of
selected programs, and this was followed by another line containing
the pseudo-command "ALL", that user could execute arbitrary commands
with sudo by creating symbolic links at a certain time.

Please note that this does not affect a standard Ubuntu installation.
