    Synopsis:          Important: rsyslog7 security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:1654-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1654.html
    Issue date:        2014-10-16

    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated rsyslog7 packages that fix one security issue are now available for
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security
    impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
    gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
    References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    The rsyslog7 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 or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
    the rsyslog daemon. (CVE-2014-3634)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank Rainer Gerhards of rsyslog upstream for
    reporting this issue.
    
    All rsyslog7 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.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
    use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
    
    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
