[slackware-security]  sudo (SSA:2006-045-08)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current to fix a security issue.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-0151


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sudo-1.6.8p12-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to sudo-1.6.8p12.
  This fixes an issue where a user able to run a Python script through sudo
  may be able to gain root access.
  IMHO, running any kind of scripting language from sudo is still not safe...
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-0151
  (* Security fix *)
