    [slackware-security]  sudo (SSA:2019-287-01)
    
    New sudo packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
    fix a security issue.
    
    
    Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
    +--------------------------+
    patches/packages/sudo-1.8.28-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
      Fixed a bug where an sudo user may be able to run a command as root when
      the Runas specification explicitly disallows root access as long as the
      ALL keyword is listed first.
      For more information, see:
