Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.67904
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0675
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0675.

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

A flaw was found in the way sudo handled Runas specifications containing
both a user and a group list. If a local user were authorized by the
sudoers file to perform their sudo commands with the privileges of a
specified user and group, they could use this flaw to run those commands
with the privileges of either an arbitrary user or group on the system.
(CVE-2010-2956)

Red Hat would like to thank Markus Wuethrich of Swiss Post - PostFinance
for reporting this issue.

Users of sudo should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue.

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
