[slackware-security]  sudo (SSA:2015-047-03)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sudo-1.8.12-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a potential security issue by only passing the TZ
  environment variable it is considered safe.  This prevents exploiting bugs
  in glibc's TZ parser that could be used to read files that the user does
  not have access to, or to cause a denial of service.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.sudo.ws/sudo/alerts/tz.html
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-9680
  (* Security fix *)
