RHSA-2005-364: logwatch

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the logwatch packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated logwatch package that fixes a denial of service issue is now
available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

LogWatch is a customizable log analysis system. LogWatch parses
through your system's logs for a given period of time and creates a
report analyzing areas that you specify, in as much detail as you
require.

A bug was found in the logwatch secure script. If a possible hacker is able to
inject an arbitrary string into the /var/log/secure file, it is possible to
prevent logwatch from detecting malicious activity. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-1061 to this issue.

All users of logwatch are advised to upgrade to this updated
package, which contain backported fixes for this issue.
