sudo (SSA:2006-045-08)
Posted on: 02/15/2006 12:14 PM

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and -current to fix a security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/sudo-1.6.8p12-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to sudo-1.6.8p12.
This fixes an issue where a user able to run a Python script through sudo
may be able to gain root access.
IMHO, running any kind of scripting language from sudo is still not safe...
