[slackware-security]  sudo redo (SSA:2010-258-03)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix a directory permissions
issue.  These replacement packages restore the correct permissions to /var.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/sudo-1.7.4p4-i486-2_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  The last sudo packages accidentally changed the permissions on /var from
  755 to 700.  This build restores the proper permissions.
  Thanks to Petri Kaukasoina for pointing this out.

Where to find the new packages:

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from
Give a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
( for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)
