===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-142-1       June 21, 2005
sudo vulnerability
CAN-2005-1993
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

sudo

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1.6.7p5-1ubuntu4.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 1.6.8p5-1ubuntu2.1
(for Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Charles Morris discovered a race condition in sudo which could lead to
privilege escalation. If /etc/sudoers allowed a user the execution of
selected programs, and this was followed by another line containing
the pseudo-command "ALL", that user could execute arbitrary commands
with sudo by creating symbolic links at a certain time.

Please note that this does not affect a standard Ubuntu installation.
