Package: sysklogd
Vulnerability: root exploit
Debian-specific: no

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in syslogd and klogd. A
local root exploit is possible, and remote exploits may be possible in
some cases (though we are not currently aware of a remote exploit.)

Fixed packages are available in version 1.3-31.slink1 for Debian 2.1
(slink) and version 1.3-33.1 for Debian 2.2 (potato). We recommend
upgrading your sysklogd package immediately.
