 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:026
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : sudo
 Date    : March 18, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in sudo:
 
 sudo 1.6.0 through 1.7.10p6 and sudo 1.8.0 through 1.8.6p6 allows
 local users or physically-proximate attackers to bypass intended time
 restrictions and retain privileges without re-authenticating by setting
 the system clock and sudo user timestamp to the epoch (CVE-2013-1775).
 
 Sudo before 1.8.6p7 allows a malicious user to run commands via
 sudo without authenticating, so long as there exists a terminal the
 user has access to where a sudo command was successfully run by that
 same user within the password timeout period (usually five minutes)
 (CVE-2013-1776).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
