sudo TWICE in Update Manager?
Last night ~00:00UTC 2012-05-17 I had one item on Update Manager.
I clicked 'Check' just in case there were others. There were. I then absent mindedly clicked 'Install Updates' without checking the list first.
When it had finished, I noticed in the by now greyed-out list, two entries for sudo. One had a checkbox, as normal, but one had no checkbox -- ie no option not to choose it. They were:
I can't remember the usual descriptive wording, but the specranch bit is as it was.
checkbox sudo allow elevation to superuser by user
no checkbox sudo allow elevation to superuser by specranch
Have I somehow allowed in a trojan? Or in some other way been cracked?
Is it ever the case for an item in update to be un-tickable?
Apart from sources and signing keys for Ubuntu Lucid,
my other sources (with signing keys) are:
Can anyone put my mind at rest?
