- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 842507.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-7032, CVE-2016-7076.
- More information:
It was discovered that the sudo noexec restriction could have been bypassed if application run via sudo executed system(), popen() or wordexp() C library functions with a user supplied argument. A local user permitted to run such application via sudo with noexec restriction could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands with elevated privileges.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.5p2-1+nmu3+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.
