The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Peter Eisentraut discovered that Rsyslog would not properly perform
input validation when configured to use imfile. If an attacker were
able to craft messages in a file that Rsyslog monitored, an attacker
could cause a denial of service. The imfile module is disabled by
default in Ubuntu.
Update the affected rsyslog package.
