SuSE 11.1 Security Update : sudo, sudo-debuginfo, sudo-debugsource (SAT Patch Number 6306)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.

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 behaviour was
aligned to the one described in the sudoers manpage
