                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: sudo security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2010:0122-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0122.html
Issue date:        2010-02-26
CVE Names:         CVE-2010-0426 CVE-2010-0427 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An updated sudo package that fixes two security issues is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The sudo (superuser do) utility allows system administrators to give
certain users the ability to run commands as root.

A privilege escalation flaw was found in the way sudo handled the sudoedit
pseudo-command. If a local user were authorized by the sudoers file to use
this pseudo-command, they could possibly leverage this flaw to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the root user. (CVE-2010-0426)

The sudo utility did not properly initialize supplementary groups when the
"runas_default" option (in the sudoers file) was used. If a local user
were authorized by the sudoers file to perform their sudo commands under
the account specified with "runas_default", they would receive the root
user's supplementary groups instead of those of the intended target user,
giving them unintended privileges. (CVE-2010-0427)

Users of sudo should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

567337 - CVE-2010-0426 sudo: sudoedit option can possibly allow for arbitrary code execution
567622 - CVE-2010-0427 sudo: Fails to reset group permissions if runas_default set
