Package        : rsyslog
Version        : 8.24.0-1+deb9u2
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16881 CVE-2022-24903
Debian Bug     : 1010619

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in rsyslog, a system and
kernel logging daemon. When a log server is configured to accept logs
from remote clients through specific modules such as 'imptcp', an
attacker can cause a denial of service (DoS) and possibly execute code
on the server.

CVE-2018-16881

    A denial of service vulnerability was found in rsyslog
    in the imptcp module. An attacker could send a specially crafted
    message to the imptcp socket, which would cause rsyslog to crash.

CVE-2022-24903

    Modules for TCP syslog reception have a potential heap buffer
    overflow when octet-counted framing is used. This can result in a
    segfault or some other malfunction.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
8.24.0-1+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your rsyslog packages.
