Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66964
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0122
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0122.

The sudo (superuser do) utility allows system administrators to give
certain users the ability to run commands as root.

A privilege escalation flaw was found in the way sudo handled the sudoedit
pseudo-command. If a local user were authorized by the sudoers file to use
this pseudo-command, they could possibly leverage this flaw to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user. (CVE-2010-0426)

The sudo utility did not properly initialize supplementary groups when the
runas_default option (in the sudoers file) was used. If a local user
were authorized by the sudoers file to perform their sudo commands under
the account specified with runas_default, they would receive the root
user's supplementary groups instead of those of the intended target user,
giving them unintended privileges. (CVE-2010-0427)

Users of sudo should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
