Description Jeff Sheltren 2005-08-28 08:30:04 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.

See https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-535.html

This effects all legacy distributions.
