The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
Steve Grubb discovered a bug in sysklogd where it allocates an
insufficient amount of memory which causes sysklogd to write to
unallocated memory. This could allow for a malicious user to crash
The updated packages provide a patched sysklogd using patches from
Openwall to correct the problem and also corrects the use of an
unitialized variable (a previous use of 'count').
Update the affected sysklogd package.
