Immunix OS Security Advisory (#IMNX-2001-70-004-01)

by Phiber on February 28th, 2001 The version of sudo shipped in Immunix OS 7.0-beta and 7.0 contains a buffer overflow of a variable that is on the heap (which StackGuard does not protect against.)
This problem was originally reported by Chris Wilson (see for his original bug report.) The 1.6.3p6 version of sudo was released to fix this problem.

Packages have been created and released that fix this problem.
