The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.
This update for logrotate provides the following fixes :
- 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
- In addition, the missingok option has been improved
