Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:201
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : sudo
Date : October 27, 2005
Affected: 10.1, 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 2.1, Corporate 3.0,
Multi Network Firewall 2.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Tavis Ormandy discovered that sudo does not perform sufficient
environment cleaning; in particular the SHELLOPTS and PS4 variables are
still passed to the program running as an alternate user which can
result in the execution of arbitrary commands as the alternate user
when a bash script is executed.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
