Slackware64-15.0 ChangeLog (2020-01-31)

Fri Jan 31 20:46:25 UTC 2020

  • a/util-linux-2.35.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • ap/sudo-1.8.31-x86_64-1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue:
    In Sudo before 1.8.31, if pwfeedback is enabled in /etc/sudoers, users can
    trigger a stack-based buffer overflow in the privileged sudo process.
    (pwfeedback is a default setting in some Linux distributions; however, it
    is not the default for upstream or in Slackware, and would exist only if
    enabled by an administrator.) The attacker needs to deliver a long string
    to the stdin of getln() in tgetpass.c.
    For more information, see:
    (* Security fix *)
