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.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
