sudo (SSA:2013-065-01) Update for Slackware

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/sudo-1.8.6p7-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes security issues that could allow a user to run commands
without authenticating after the password timeout has already expired.
Note that the vulnerability did not permit a user to run commands other
than those allowed by the sudoers policy.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
