Update sudo?


I'm on debian lenny. I update all the time, but recently it lists that sudo was updated? What gives?

Um, so what is wrong with upgrading sudo?

And what exactly "lists that sudo was updated"?

Sudo is a package just like any other. According to the home page, version 1.7.2p5 was just released Monday. It shouldn't effect your ability to run sudo, if that's what you're concerned about

It is probably the fix for Debian bug #570737
