I just got this security alert from OmniOS support.
Emergency security update due a very critical bug in sudo

I suggest all to update sudo as soon as possible (update OS if no fix is available)
For OmniOS (151030-151036) a fix is available now (for all user even without a support contract)

To install the update utter the following
# pkg update sudo omnios-userland entire

To test if you are affected:
enter "sudoedit -s /"

if you are affected, the answer should begin with "sudoedit:" (what I have read)
