--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2005-473 2005-06-21 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 4 Name : sudo Version : 1.6.8p8 Release : 2.2 Summary : Allows restricted root access for specified users. Description : Sudo (superuser do) allows a system administrator to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root while logging all commands and arguments. Sudo operates on a per-command basis. It is not a replacement for the shell. Features include: the ability to restrict what commands a user may run on a per-host basis, copious logging of each command (providing a clear audit trail of who did what), a configurable timeout of the sudo command, and the ability to use the same configuration file (sudoers) on many different machines. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Tue Jun 21 2005 Karel Zak <> 1.6.8p8-2.2 - fix #161116 - CAN-2005-1993 sudo trusted user arbitrary command execution --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: 559f249ff294bbe3d4e656246a923082 SRPMS/sudo-1.6.8p8-2.2.src.rpm de408134c434cea2b1ed8d17d95b477a ppc/sudo-1.6.8p8-2.2.ppc.rpm 1c2a778cf3e51af35ac8b114cee4ba20 ppc/debug/sudo-debuginfo-1.6.8p8-2.2.ppc.rpm 558b31097f4174f5c391c22c6c53cfe1 x86_64/sudo-1.6.8p8-2.2.x86_64.rpm 95bbcc2ff79deee94c23ced8db72c14b x86_64/debug/sudo-debuginfo-1.6.8p8-2.2.x86_64.rpm 6791e18e0bb604c38183e28638e9750a i386/sudo-1.6.8p8-2.2.i386.rpm 3be32b8c99f2228b91e31d3c01b25374 i386/debug/sudo-debuginfo-1.6.8p8-2.2.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
