The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-22
(sudo: Arbitrary command execution)
The sudoers file is used to define the actions sudo users are
permitted to perform. Charles Morris discovered that a specific layout
of the sudoers file could cause the results of an internal check to be
clobbered, leaving sudo vulnerable to a race condition.
Successful exploitation would permit a local sudo user to execute
arbitrary commands as another user.
Reorder the sudoers file using the visudo utility to ensure the
'ALL' pseudo-command precedes other command definitions.
