Problem description

A buffer overflow exists in the sudo program which could be used by an attacker to obtain higher privileges. sudo is a program used to delegate superuser privileges to ordinary users and only for specific commands. Update: The sudo package for 7.1 used the system-auth facility of newer pam versions and thus would not install or work correctly under Linux- Mandrake 7.1. This update resolves the dependancy issue as well as provides the correct pam configuration file.
