Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains one medium risk vulnerability.

1) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU42929

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2013-2777

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to read and manipulate data.

sudo before 1.7.10p5 and 1.8.x before 1.8.6p6, when the tty_tickets option is enabled, does not properly validate the controlling terminal device, which allows local users with sudo permissions to hijack the authorization of another terminal via vectors related to a session without a controlling terminal device and connecting to the standard input, output, and error file descriptors of another terminal. NOTE: this is one of three closely-related vulnerabilities that were originally assigned CVE-2013-1776, but they have been SPLIT because of different affected versions.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

Sudo: 1.3.5 - 1.8.6p5
