I read an article on zdnet about a buffer overflow vulnerability in sudo...
The rising popularity of the current Mac OS X and the new operating
in the ubiquitous Unix operating system have started to draw the
scrutiny of hackers and security experts.
In early April, a buffer overflow was found in a program known as
"sudo," used by system administrators
to allow users to run restricted applications.
Would this problem effect other platforms running sudo?
How can this problem be fixed?
I have not seen any mention of this problem on this mailing list and I tried
searching the bug tracking system without luck. I am
currently running sudo 1.6.3p5.
