The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.
A vulnerability has been found and corrected in sudo :
sudo 1.6.x before 1.6.9p21 and 1.7.x before 1.7.2p4, when a
pseudo-command is enabled, permits a match between the name of the
pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary
directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted
executable file, as demonstrated by a file named sudoedit in a user's
home directory (CVE-2010-0426).
Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
Update the affected sudo package.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.9
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.0
Public Exploit Available : true
