EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : sudo (EulerOS-SA-2016-1055)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99817


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the sudo package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was discovered that the default sudo configuration preserved the value of INPUTRC from the user's environment, which could lead to information disclosure. A local user with sudo access to a restricted program that uses readline could use this flaw to read content from specially formatted files with elevated privileges provided by sudo.(CVE-2016-7091)

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


Update the affected sudo package.
