Fedora 13 : sudo-1.7.4p4-1.fc13 (2010-14355)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 49197


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


- update to new upstream version - sudo now uses /var/db/sudo for timestamps - new command available:
sudoreplay - use native audit support - corrected license field value: BSD -> ISC - added env_keep += HOME (see rhbz#614025) for backwards compatibility - added Defaults !visiblepw - fixes CVE-2010-2956

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


Update the affected sudo package.
