[SECURITY] [DLA 1011-1] sudo security update

Package        : sudo
Version        : 1.8.5p2-1+nmu3+deb7u4
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-1000368
Debian Bug     : 863897

Todd Miller's sudo version 1.8.20p1 and earlier is vulnerable to an
input validation (embedded newlines) in the get_process_ttyname()
function resulting in information disclosure and command execution.

The previous announcement (DLA-970-1) was about a similar security
issue (CVE-2017-1000367) which wasn't completely fixed.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your sudo packages.
