What's the best way to upgrade the sudo from 1.7.2 by default to 1.8.1 or above? I've an auditing program that required sudo 1.8.1 or above. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04. Thanks a lot.
The package is rather vital for a correct working of Ubuntu so prepare for things to break. If your system is a production server I would advice to first test this on another server where you can play and break.
If at any way possible I would also consider upgrading/updating to the new LTS to prevent similar problems in the future.
