Default Security hole in Sudo's debug option closed

From http://h-online.com/-1425163

Quote:
A hole in the sudo command's debug options has been fixed by the developers. The problem, discovered by joernchen of phenoelit, affects sudo versions 1.8.0 to 1.8.3p1. The sudo command is used extensively by Linux distributions, Mac OS X and other Unix operating systems to allow users to execute commands with super user privileges without logging in as root, and is often heavily relied upon. The security hole appeared in version 1.8.0 when a new simple debugging option was added.
