|Title:||RedHat Update for sudo RHSA-2017:1382-01|
|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 packages contain the sudo utility
which allows system administrators to provide certain users with the permission
to execute privileged commands, which are used for system management purposes,
without having to log in as root.
* A flaw was found in the way sudo parsed tty information from the process
status file in the proc filesystem. A local user with privileges to execute
commands via sudo could use this flaw to escalate their privileges to root.
Red Hat would like to thank Qualys Security for reporting this issue.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
