Description


Updated rsyslog5 and rsyslog packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 respectively.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
References section.

The rsyslog packages provide an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon
that supports writing to relational databases, syslog/TCP, RFC 3195,
permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part, and fine grained
output format control.

A flaw was found in the way rsyslog handled invalid log message priority
values. In certain configurations, a local attacker, or a remote attacker
able to connect to the rsyslog port, could use this flaw to crash the
rsyslog daemon. (CVE-2014-3634)

Red Hat would like to thank Rainer Gerhards of rsyslog upstream for
reporting this issue.

All rsyslog5 and rsyslog users are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After
installing the update, the rsyslog service will be restarted automatically.
Please see https://www.redhat.com/footer/terms-of-use.html

Am I vulnerable?
