Posted by LinuxSecurity.com Team   
Debian The most recent advisory covering sudo missed one architecture that was released with 2.2. Therefore this advisory is only an addition to DSA 031-1 and only adds the relevant package for the powerpc architecture.

Debian Security Advisory DSA-031-2                       security@debian.org

Package        : sudo
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Debian-specific: no

Todd Miller announced a new version of sudo which corrects a buffer
overflow that could potentially be used to gain root privilages on the
local system.  This bugfix has been backported to the version which
was used in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.

The most recent advisory covering sudo missed one architecture that
was released with 2.2.  Therefore this advisory is only an addition to
DSA 031-1 and only adds the relevant package for the powerpc
architecture.

We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for powerpc immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
------------------------------------

  Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc
  architectures.

  PowerPC architecture:

     http://security.debian.org/dists/stable/updates/main/binary-powerpc/sudo_1.6.2p2-1potato1_powerpc.deb
