Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

ISS reports :

sudosh2 and sudosh3 are vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow,
caused by improper bounds checking by the replay() function. By
persuading a victim to replay a specially crafted recorded sudo
session, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and execute
arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the
application to crash.
