    Attackers may trick "sudo" to log failed sudo invocations executing the sendmail program with root-privileges and not completely cleaned environment.

    Package        : sudo
    Vulnerability  : Root exploit
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Sebastian Krahmer from SuSE found a vulnerability in sudo which could
    easily lead into a local root exploit.
    
    This problem has been fixed in upstream version 1.6.4 as well as in
    version 1.6.2p2-2.1 for the stable release of Debian GNU/Linux.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
