    The most recent advisory covering sudo missed one architecture that was released with 2.2. Therefore this advisory is only an addition to DSA 031-1 and only adds the relevant package for the powerpc architecture.

    Package        : sudo
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    
    Todd Miller announced a new version of sudo which corrects a buffer
    overflow that could potentially be used to gain root privilages on the
    local system.  This bugfix has been backported to the version which
    was used in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2.
    
    The most recent advisory covering sudo missed one architecture that
    was released with 2.2.  Therefore this advisory is only an addition to
    DSA 031-1 and only adds the relevant package for the powerpc
    architecture.
    
    We recommend you upgrade your sudo packages for powerpc immediately.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
