CVSS Base Vector:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'sudo'
Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DSA-1964-1 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
In sudo, a program that provides limited super user privileges to
specific users, an attacker with access to a Runas ALL sudoer account
can bypass certain policy blacklists and session PAM modules, and can
cause incorrect logging, by invoking sudo with a crafted user ID. For
example, this allows bypass of (ALL,!root) configuration for a
'sudo -u#-1' command.
See the referenced vendor advisory for further information.
'sudo' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Debian Linux.
