Debian Security Advisory DSA-128-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman
April 26, 2002
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------


Package : sudo
Problem type : buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

fc found a buffer overflow in the variable expansion code
used by sudo for its prompt. Since sudo is necessarily installed suid
root a local user can use this to gain root access.

This has been fixed in version 1.6.2-2.2 and we recommend that you upgrade
your sudo package immediately.

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
