Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.871279
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for rsyslog5 and rsyslog RHSA-2014:1671-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'rsyslog5 and rsyslog'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'rsyslog5 and rsyslog'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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.

Affected Software/OS:
rsyslog5 and rsyslog on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
