    In sudo, a program that provides limited super user privileges to
    specific users, an attacker with access to a Runas ALL sudoer account
    can bypass certain policy blacklists and session PAM modules, and can
    cause incorrect logging, by invoking sudo with a crafted user ID. For
    example, this allows bypass of (ALL,!root) configuration for a
    "sudo -u#-1" command.
    
    See https://www.sudo.ws/alerts/minus_1_uid.html for further
    information.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.8.10p3-1+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.
