OVERVIEW

Kernel logging daemon klogd in the sysklogd package for Linux contains a
"format bug" making it vulnerable to local root compromise (successfully
tested on Linux/x86). There's also a possibility for remote vulnerability
under certain (rather unprobable)  circumstances and a more probable
semi-remote exploitableness with knfsd.


The patch.
