Patch  oval:org.mitre.oval:def:11784
DSA-2062 sudo -- missing input sanitisation  

Anders Kaseorg and Evan Broder discovered a vulnerability in sudo, a program designed to allow a sysadmin to give limited root privileges to users, that allows a user with sudo permissions on certain programs to use those programs with an untrusted value of PATH. This could possibly lead to certain intended restrictions being bypassed, such as the secure_path setting.
