  • Linux sudo flaw

    Posted on January 27th, 2021 at 23:55 Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Over there on the “other” platform, Linux also needs to be updated this week.

    As bleepingcomputer notes,

    A now-fixed Sudo vulnerability allowed any local user to gain root privileges on Unix-like operating systems without requiring authentication.

    What’s interesting is the bug has been under the hood for 9 years!
