Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA186] DSA-186-1 log2mail

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-186-1 log2mail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Enrico Zini discovered a buffer overflow in log2mail, a daemon for
watching logfiles and sending lines with matching patterns via mail.
The log2mail daemon is started upon system boot and runs as root. A
specially crafted (remote) log message could overflow a static buffer,
potentially leaving log2mail to execute arbitrary code as root.
This problem has been fixed in version 0.2.5.1 the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 0.2.6-1 for the unstable
distribution (sid). The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected since it doesn't contain a log2mail package.
We recommend that you upgrade your log2mail package.
