Hi All,
       I have sudo on solaris 8. Someone has changed the permission on the 
sudoer file. When I do sudo su -anyuser I got the following error (sudoers 
is mode 0640, should be 0440). Now the bvious solution would be to switch to 
root and do chmod 0440 sudoers, yet the admin of that box left the company 
and we do not have the root password on that box. If anyone can help solving 
this problem without reinstalling solaris I would really thankful.
Thanks in advance.
