Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A flaw was found in the way sudo handled its blacklist of environment
variables. When the 'env_reset' option was disabled, a user permitted
to run certain commands via sudo could use this flaw to run such a
command with one of the blacklisted environment variables set,
allowing them to run an arbitrary command with the target user's
privileges. (CVE-2014-0106)

Note: This issue does not affect the default configuration of the sudo
package as shipped with Scientific Linux 5.
