Exposure Level Classification:
    Local Root Deterministic Privilege Escalation
Updated Versions: 

rPath Issue Tracking System:


    In previous versions of sudo, in a non-default configuration which
    allows users in certain groups to run commands as other non-root
    users, it is possible for non-root users to inappropriately gain
    root privileges.  This has been fixed.
