Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68933
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1046-1 (sudo)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1046-1 (sudo)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to sudo
announced via advisory USN-1046-1.

Details follow:

Alexander Kurtz discovered that sudo would not prompt for a password when
a group was specified in the Runas_Spec. A local attacker could exploit
this to execute arbitrary code as the specified group if sudo was
configured to allow the attacker to use a program as this group. The group
Runas_Spec is not used in the default installation of Ubuntu.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10:
sudo 1.7.0-1ubuntu2.6
sudo-ldap 1.7.0-1ubuntu2.6

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
sudo 1.7.2p1-1ubuntu5.3
sudo-ldap 1.7.2p1-1ubuntu5.3

Ubuntu 10.10:
sudo 1.7.2p7-1ubuntu2.1
sudo-ldap 1.7.2p7-1ubuntu2.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
