Description Chris Ricker 2001-02-23 12:22:06 EST
Todd Miller has just released sudo-1.6.3-pl6 (wolverine contains pl5),
which he says fixes a buffer overflow.  No known exploits are known, but
it's still obviously a problem.

Security updates for 7.0, etc., will also be necessary.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Release-Candidate #2
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-23 16:55:47 EST
Fixed in the current version; currently building errata packages for 7.0, 
powertools-6.x and powertools-5.x
Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-03-01 14:16:35 EST
Umm, shouldn't the resolution for these be ERRATA not RAWHIDE?
