    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in sudo, a program designed
    to allow a sysadmin to give limited root privileges to users. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2013-1775
    
        Marco Schoepl discovered an authentication bypass when the clock is
        set to the UNIX epoch [00:00:00 UTC on 1 January 1970].
    
    CVE-2013-1776
    
        Ryan Castellucci and James Ogden discovered aspects of an issue that
        would allow session id hijacking from another authorized tty.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.7.4p4-2.squeeze.4.
    
    For the testing (wheezy) and unstable (sid) distributions, these problems
    have been fixed in version 1.8.5p2-1+nmu1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.
