SuSE 10 Security Update : sudo, sudo-debuginfo (ZYPP Patch Number 8134)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

This update fixes a security problem in sudo :

Multiple netmask values used in Host / Host_List configuration caused
any host to be allowed access. (CVE-2012-2337)

Also a bug in wildcard matching could allow too relaxed matches within
subdirectories of the specified path so /usr/bin/* would also match
/usr/bin/X11/*, which is probably not intended. The behavior was
aligned to the one described in the sudoers manpage
