                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           sysklogd
Date:                   September 18th, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:050

Affected versions:      6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 7.1
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A problem exists with the kernel logging daemon (klogd) in the sysklogd
 package.  A "format bug" makes klogd vulnerable to local root 
 compromise, as well as the possibility for remote vulnerabilities under
 certain circumstances, which are unprobable.  There is also a more
 probable semi-remote exploit via knfsd.  This update provides a patched
 version of klogd that fixes these vulnerabilities.
________________________________________________________________________

Please verify these md5 checksums of the updates prior to upgrading to
ensure the integrity of the downloaded package.  You can do this by
running the md5sum program on the downloaded package by using
"md5sum package.rpm".

To upgrade automatically, use « MandrakeUpdate ».  

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".  

You can download the updates directly from:
  ftp://ftp.linux.tucows.com/pub/distributions/Mandrake/Mandrake/updates
  ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrake/updates

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:

  http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en/ftp.php3.  

Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory.  
For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for
Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/".  Updated source
RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download
them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two 
above-listed mirrors.
