Scientific Linux Security Update : sudo on SL5.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60529
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA flaw was discovered in a way sudo handled group specifications in 'run as' lists in the sudoers configuration file. If sudo configuration allowed a user to run commands as any user of some group and the user was also a member of that group, sudo incorrectly allowed them to run defined commands with the privileges of any system user.
This gave the user unintended privileges. (CVE-2009-0034)
SolutionUpdate the affected sudo package.
