______________________________________________________________________________

A security hole was discovered in the package mentioned above.
Please update as soon as possible or disable the service if you are using
this software on your SuSE Linux installation(s).

Other Linux distributions or operating systems might be affected as
well, please contact your vendor for information about this issue.

Please note, that that we provide this information on an "as-is" basis only.
There is no warranty whatsoever and no liability for any direct, indirect or
incidental damage arising from this information or the installation of

_____________________________________________________________________________

1. Problem Description

  The syslogd server uses a Unix Domain stream socket (/dev/log) for receiving
  local log messages via syslog(3).
  Unix Domain stream sockets are non connection-less, that means, that
  one process is needed to serve one client.

2. Impact

  By opening alot of local syslog connections a user could stop the
  system from responding.

3. Solution

  Updated the package from our FTP server.
