Updated sudo packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 26 Jul 2016
Affected Mageia releases : 5
A vulnerability in functionality for adding support of SHA-2 digests along with the command was found. The sudoers plugin performs this digest verification while matching rules, and later independently calls execve() to execute the binary. This results in a race condition if the digest functionality is used as suggested (in fact, the rules are matched before the user is prompted for a password, so there is not negligible time frame to replace the binary from underneath sudo) (CVE-2015-8239).
