Updating sudo on CentOS 6

CentOS 6 is now EOL (End of life).

Unfortunately there's a nasty little bug in the sudo application that can cause non-privileged users to gain root access.

To patch it, download the RPM directly from the sudo site and upgrade:

rpm -Uvh

If you run sudo -V you should now see:

Sudoers I/O plugin version 1.9.5p2
