Matthieu Barjole and Victor Cutillas discovered that sudoedit in sudo, a program designed to provide limited super user privileges to specific users, does not properly handle '--' to separate the editor and arguments from files to edit. A local user permitted to edit certain files can take advantage of this flaw to edit a file not permitted by the security policy, resulting in privilege escalation.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version 1.8.27-1+deb10u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.

For the detailed security status of sudo please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/sudo
