 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:049
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : sudo
 Date    : February 25, 2010
 Affected: 2008.0, 2009.0, 2009.1, 2010.0, Corporate 4.0,
           Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerabilitiy has been found and corrected in sudo:
 
 sudo 1.6.x before 1.6.9p21 and 1.7.x before 1.7.2p4, when a
 pseudo-command is enabled, permits a match between the name of the
 pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary
 directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted
 executable file, as demonstrated by a file named sudoedit in a user's
 home directory (CVE-2010-0426).
 
 Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
 customers.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
