Re: [suse-security] what the hell is this?

Dear Dirk,

This happened to me too (on SuSE 9.3) and I found that it appeared to be
caused by a bug in the SuSE-supplied /etc/logrotate.d/xinetd: it contained
a wild-card entry so that rotated files got re-rotated.

SuSE then released an updated package xinetd-2.3.13-45.2 which claimed to
fix the problem, however it still looks bad to me.
