(sudo: Unauthorized privilege escalation in sudoedit)
sudoedit in sudo is vulnerable to the escalation of privileges by local
users via a symlink attack. This can be exploited by a file whose full
path is defined using multiple wildcards in “/etc/sudoers”, as
demonstrated by “/home/*/*/file.txt”.
Local users are able to gain unauthorized privileges on the system.
There is no known work around at this time.
