       An update that solves one vulnerability and has three fixes
       is now available.
       This update for sudo provides the following fix:
       Security issue fixed:
       - CVE-2019-14287: Fixed an issue where a user with sudo privileges that
         allowed them to run commands with an arbitrary uid, could run commands
         as root, despite being forbidden to do so in sudoers (bsc#1153674).
       Other issues fixed:
       - Cache resolved group names as calling getgrgid() is expensive and
         on systems connected to AD with many users, groups or sudo rules it
          causes sudo to take a long time to run (bsc#1068003).
       - Disable insults by default at build time. For new installations this was
         done via sudoers file, but when upgrading from previous versions it
         would accidentally be enabled (bsc#1053911).
       - Enable support for zlib compressed I/O logs (bsc#1058297).
