Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

A vulnerability has been found and corrected in sudo :

A flaw exists in the IP network matching code in sudo versions 1.6.9p3
through 1.8.4p4 that may result in the local host being matched even
though it is not actually part of the network described by the IP
address and associated netmask listed in the sudoers file or in LDAP.
As a result, users authorized to run commands on certain IP networks
may be able to run commands on hosts that belong to other networks not
explicitly listed in sudoers (CVE-2012-2337

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
