sudo race condition - CAN-2005-1993
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:30:56 EDT
A race condition bug was found in the way sudo handles pathnames. It is
possible that a local user with limited sudo access could create
a race condition that would allow the execution of arbitrary commands as
the root user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-1993 to this issue.
This effects all legacy distributions.
