Slackware Security Advisory - sudo (SSA:2013-065-01)
[slackware-security]  sudo (SSA:2013-065-01)

New sudo packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/sudo-1.8.6p7-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes security issues that could allow a user to run commands
  without authenticating after the password timeout has already expired.
  Note that the vulnerability did not permit a user to run commands other
  than those allowed by the sudoers policy.
  For more information, see:
