Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56173
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2006:1057
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLSA-2006:1057
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLSA-2006:1057.

This announcement fixes a privilege escalation vulnerability
noticed by Tavis Ormandy. Sudo did not clear the SHELLOPTS
and PS4 environment variables before executing a bash script
on behalf of another user, which could allow local users to
gain privileges.

Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
