Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that Rsyslog incorrectly handled invalid PRI values.
An attacker could use this issue to send malformed messages to the
Rsyslog server and cause it to stop responding, resulting in a denial
of service and possibly message loss. (CVE-2014-3634, CVE-2014-3683).
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected rsyslog package.
