Sudo 1.8.0 through 1.9.12, with the crypt() password backend, contains a
plugins/sudoers/auth/passwd.c array-out-of-bounds error that can result in
a heap-based buffer over-read. This can be triggered by arbitrary local
users with access to Sudo by entering a password of seven characters or
fewer. The impact could vary depending on the system libraries, compiler,
and processor architecture. (CVE-2022-43995)
