Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69180
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2011:0324
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2011:0324.

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 flaw was found in the way Logwatch processed log files. If an attacker
were able to create a log file with a malicious file name, it could result
in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the root user when that
log file is analyzed by Logwatch. (CVE-2011-1018)

Users of logwatch should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to resolve this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
