Thought this might be useful for anyone using Slackware 7.1 and sudo.
Slackware is strongly encouraging users of Slackware Linux 7.1 and -current to upgrade sudo. This release fixes a known buffer overflow vulnerability.
The packages can be downloaded from
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...e/ap1/sudo.tgz
for -current, and from ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...kages/sudo.tgz for 7.1.
