NewsSudo flaw lets Linux users run commands as root even when they're restricted Pin

The vulnerability in question is a sudo security policy bypass issue that could allow a malicious user or a program to execute arbitrary commands as root on a targeted Linux system even when the "sudoers configuration" explicitly disallows the root access.
I guess they will make me a sandwich after all.
