Description Robert Scheck 2005-03-23 05:22:24 EST
Description of problem:
sudo 1.6.8p7 was released on February 5th, 2005 - and Fedora Core Development
only has 1.6.7p5.

Vendor also says: "Please note: versions of Sudo prior to 1.6.8p2 are affected 
by a potential security flaw that could allow a malicious user to subvert Bash 
shell scripts." 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
Some patch merging is necessary and sudoedit (copy of sudo) should be removed
including the duplicate of the man page:

 mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/pam.d
 cat > $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/pam.d/sudo << EOF

Expected results:
Upgrade to 1.6.8p7 ;-)

Additional info:
This upgrade would solve bug #151632.

Hopefully, I didn't do any mistakes at patch merging...
Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2005-04-12 08:29:42 EDT
Fixed in rawhide in rpm sudo-1.6.8p8-1 or newer.
I had to rebuild the selinux patch, the result is similar to your patch, Thanks.
