The remote SuSE 11 host is missing a security update.
This update for logrotate provides the following fixes :
- The shred_file function in logrotate might allow
context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary
commands via shell metacharacters in a log filename, as
demonstrated by a filename that is automatically
constructed on the basis of a hostname or virtual
machine name (CVE-2011-1154). (bnc#679661)
- Race condition in the createOutputFile function in
logrotate allows local users to read log data by opening
a file before the intended permissions are in place
- The writeState function in logrotate might allow
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service
(rotation outage) via a (1) \n (newline) or (2) \
(backslash) character in a log filename, as demonstrated
by a filename that is automatically constructed on the
basis of a hostname or virtual machine name
- Fix handling of missingok option which previously was
not working as expected.
