bug#28618: Emacs Security Issue

PS If your concern is about a user account that can only run "sudo
emacs", firstly that seems a bit unlikely, and secondly Emacs is a
big, complicated program that can eg spawn a bash shell. So it should
not be used in a sudo environment where you want to have tight control
over what the sudoer can run.

BTW, if user foo runs "sudo emacs", it consults /root/.emacs, not ~foo/.emacs.
So I don't understand your specific concern with the init file.
