Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

Charles Morris discovered a race condition in sudo which could lead to
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.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- sudo-1.6.8p5-1ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
