EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.1 : sudo (EulerOS-SA-2018-1380)

High Nessus Plugin ID 119071


The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the sudo package installed, the EulerOS
Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the
following vulnerability :

- It was discovered that the sudo noexec restriction
could have been bypassed if application run via sudo
executed system(), popen(), or wordexp() C library
functions with a user-supplied argument. A local user
permitted to run such application via sudo with noexec
restriction could use these flaws to execute arbitrary
commands with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7076)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected sudo package.
