Slackware New sudo packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, and 13.37 to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  sudo (SSA:2014-064-01)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, and 13.37 to fix a
security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sudo-1.7.10p8-i486-1_slack13.37.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue where if the env_reset option is disabled
  in the sudoers file, a malicious user with sudo permissions may be able to
  run arbitrary commands with elevated privileges by manipulating the
  environment of a command the user is legitimately allowed to run.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.sudo.ws/sudo/alerts/env_add.html
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0106
  (* Security fix *)
