bug#28618: Emacs Security Issue

From: Glenn Morris
Subject: bug#28618: Emacs Security Issue

User-agent: Gnus (www.gnus.org), GNU Emacs (www.gnu.org/software/emacs/)

On some systems, sudo may preserve HOME by default. Or it may be
optional behaviour with "sudo -E" (eg on Debian 8, it seems).
(Of course, the attacker who has complete control of your user account
could alias "sudo" to "sudo -E".)

Ref eg


As it stands, I don't think this is an Emacs issue.
