Package : sudo Vulnerability : several Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2010-0426 CVE-2010-0427 Debian Bugs : 570737

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in sudo, a program designed to allow a sysadmin to give limited root privileges to users database server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2010-0426:

It was discovered that sudo when a pseudo-command is enabled, permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file.

CVE-2010-0427:

It was discovered that sudo when the runas_default option is used, does not properly set group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via a sudo command.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.9p17-2+lenny1

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7.2p1-1.2, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze) shortly.

We recommend that you upgrade your sudo package.
