CVE-2010-0426

Priority
Description
sudo 1.6.x before 1.6.9p21 and 1.7.x before 1.7.2p4, when a pseudo-command
is enabled, permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the
name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local
users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file, as demonstrated by
a file named sudoedit in a user's home directory.

Notes
jdstrand"Exploitation of the bug requires that the sudoers file be
configured to allow the attacker to run sudoedit. If no users have been
granted access to sudoedit there is no impact."
Dapper has 1.6.8. If --secure-path is used and compiled to use
execvp(), then sudo should not be vulnerable. Dapper is compiled with
--secure-path and happens to use execvp()
