A certain Fedora patch for parse.c in sudo before 1.7.4p5-1.fc14 on
Fedora 14 does not properly interpret a system group (aka %group) in
the sudoers file during authorization decisions for a user who belongs
to that group, which allows local users to leverage an applicable
sudoers file and gain root privileges via a sudo command. NOTE: this
vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2009-0034 regression.
