Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-513-1 log2mail

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

jaguar@felinemenace.org discovered a format string vulnerability in
log2mail, whereby a user able to log a specially crafted message to a
logfile monitored by log2mail (for example, via syslog) could cause
arbitrary code to be executed with the rights of the log2mail
process. By default, this process runs as user 'log2mail', which is a
member of group 'adm' (which has access to read system logfiles).

For the current stable distribution (woody), this problem has been
fixed in version 0.2.5.2.

We recommend that you update your log2mail package.
