Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: sudo: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 202003-12)
Severity: high
Exploitable: local
Date: 2020-03-14
Bug(s): #697462, #707574
ID: 202003-12


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in sudo, the worst of
which could result in privilege escalation.


sudo (su “do”) allows a system administrator to delegate authority
to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or
all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of
the commands and their arguments.

Affected Packages

Package: app-admin/sudo
Vulnerable: < 1.8.31
Unaffected: >= 1.8.31
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in sudo. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


A local attacker could expose or corrupt memory information, inject code
to be run as a root user or cause a Denial of Service condition.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/sudo-1.8.31"
