for the security issue, I need to update sudo in my ubuntu 12.04 to 1.8.3p1-1ubuntu3.10 but I didn't found any source to download the package.

Ubuntu 12.04 is in Extended Security Maintenance, so you'll need to sign up for that. I believe this security update is only distributed via ESM.

https://ubuntu.com/security/esm only seems to mention 14.04 these days. I don't know exactly what this means for 12.04 ESM - this isn't the sort of thing that Launchpad staff are involved with. If you're unsure, I recommend contacting Canonical's support department (https://ubuntu.com/support).

Even the ESM period for Ubuntu 12.04 has already ended in April 2019, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

To be honest, I am astonished to see Ubuntu 12.04 still being mentioned on https://ubuntu.com/security/notices/USN-4705-2 because I thought it is already completely end of life.

thanks for your answer. I will ask ubuntu support to clarify the 1.8.3p1-1ubuntu3.10 status first.

Below is my solution :

1. Download the updated file from below link
https://www.sudo.ws/sudo.html

2. downloaded the latest update 1.9.5p2

3. put the file into Ubuntu root directory

4. type “tar –xzvf sudo-1.9.5p2.tar.gz”

5. move to the folder “cd sudo-1.9.5p2.tar.gz”

6. type “./configure”

7. type “make”

8. type “sudo make install”

(for uninstall, type “sudo make uninstall”)

To check the version, please type “sudo –V”
