Sudoedit Privilege Escalation Exploit

Exploits a missing verification of the path in the command "sudoedit", provided by the sudo package. This can be exploited to e.g. execute any command as root including a shell, allowing an unprivileged process to elevate privileges to root. This is an early release module. This is not the final version of this module. It is a pre-released version in order to deliver a module as quickly as possible to our customers that may be useful in some situations. Since this module is not the final version it may contain bugs or have limited functionality and may not have complete or accurate documentation.
