Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-28 14:05:52 UTC
Harald Koenig reported an issue in sudo where "valid sudoers rules might give users root access without password authentication."

Upstream patch:
Comment 1 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-28 14:07:53 UTC
Diego, sudo 1.7.0 is unaffected by this. It's your call whether to patch 1.6.9 or stable the new upstream version.
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-28 14:32:25 UTC
I call for stable on 1.7.0 then.

[geez that sounded like a tabletop rpg :P]
