SuSE 11 Security Update : sudo (SAT Patch Number 2084)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 45014
The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.
This update fixes two security issues : - Sudo failed to properly reset group permissions, when 'runas_default' option was used. If a local, unprivileged user was authorized by sudoers file to perform their sudo commands under default user account, it could lead to privilege escalation. (CVE-2010-0427 : CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.6) - A privilege escalation flaw was found in the way sudo used to check file paths for pseudocommands. If local, unprivileged user was authorized by sudoers file to edit one or more files, it could lead to execution of arbitrary code, with the privileges of privileged system user (root). (CVE-2010-0426 : CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.6)
