Bug Fix Advisory sudo bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1270-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-17
Last updated on: 2012-09-17
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated sudo packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The sudo (superuser do) utility allows system administrators to give certain
users the ability to run commands as root.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Due to an previous enhancement update, the sudo behavior changed to run a
command as a new child process using the fork() and execve() functions, rather
than using execve() directly and replace the sudo process. This change in
behavior caused various problems with custom scripts. This update adds a new
option to restore the old behavior. This option can be activated by adding
"Defaults cmnd_no_wait" to the /etc/sudoers file, which fixes this bug.
(BZ#854513)

All users of sudo are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
