Debian Security Advisory DSA-031-2 email@example.com http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze March 6, 2001
Package : sudo Vulnerability : buffer overflow Debian-specific: noTodd Miller announced a new version of sudo which corrects a buffer overflow that could potentially be used to gain root privilages on the local system. This bugfix has been backported to the version which was used in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.
The most recent advisory covering sudo missed one architecture that was released with 2.2. Therefore this advisory is only an addition to DSA 031-1 and only adds the relevant package for the powerpc architecture.
We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for powerpc immediately. wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file. You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the footer to the proper configuration.
Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
Potato was released for the alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc architectures.
For not yet released architectures please refer to the appropriate directory ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/sid/binary-$arch/ .
For apt-get: deb http://security.debian.org/
