FreeBSD : sudo -- certain authorized users could run commands as any user (13d6d997-f455-11dd-8516-001b77d09812)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 35613
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Todd Miller reports :

A bug was introduced in Sudo's group matching code in version 1.6.9 when support for matching based on the supplemental group vector was added. This bug may allow certain users listed in the sudoers file to run a command as a different user than their access rule specifies.


Update the affected package.
