Default Security vulnerability in sudo allows privilege escalation

From http://h-online.com/-1816387

It has been discovered that under certain conditions, a security vulnerability allows attackers to circumvent the protections offered by the sudo utility. The hole permits attackers to execute commands which would otherwise require the use of sudo coupled with the relevant password.
