SUSE Linux Security Vulnerability: CVE-2013-1776

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
4 (AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P) April 08, 2013 December 12, 2013 July 04, 2017

Description

sudo 1.3.5 through 1.7.10 and 1.8.0 through 1.8.5, when the tty_tickets option is enabled, does not properly validate the controlling terminal device, which allows local users with sudo permissions to hijack the authorization of another terminal via vectors related to connecting to the standard input, output, and error file descriptors of another terminal. NOTE: this is one of three closely-related vulnerabilities that were originally assigned CVE-2013-1776, but they have been SPLIT because of different affected versions.
