Fedora 18 : sudo-1.8.6p7-1.fc18 (2013-3297)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 65590
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 Fedora host is missing a security update.


- update to 1.8.6p7

- fixes CVE-2013-1775 and CVE-2013-1776

- fixed several packaging issues (thanks to ville.skytta at iki.fi)

- build with system zlib.

- let rpmbuild strip libexecdir/*.so.

- own the %%{_docdir}/sudo-* dir.

- fix some rpmlint warnings (spaces vs tabs, unescaped macros).

- fix bogus %%changelog dates.

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.
