|Title:||RedHat Update for sudo RHSA-2012:1081-01|
|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'sudo'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'sudo'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
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 the network matching code in sudo handled
multiple IP networks listed in user specification configuration directives.
A user, who is authorized to run commands with sudo on specific hosts,
could use this flaw to bypass intended restrictions and run those commands
on hosts not matched by any of the network specifications. (CVE-2012-2337)
All users of sudo are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
sudo on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
