SuSE 11.1 Security Update : sudo, sudo-debuginfo, sudo-debugsource (SAT Patch Number 6306)

high Nessus Plugin ID 64227

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.

Description

This update fixes a security problem in sudo :

Multiple netmask values used in Host / Host_List configuration caused any host to be allowed access. (CVE-2012-2337)

Also a bug in wildcard matching could allow too relaxed matches within subdirectories of the specified path so /usr/bin/* would also match /usr/bin/X11/*, which is probably not intended. The behaviour was aligned to the one described in the sudoers manpage

Solution

Apply SAT patch number 6306.
