Description of problem:
From ArjanV:

libaudit.c aroundline 323 has this code:
struct audit_rule *audit_rule_alloc(void)
{
    struct audit_rule *rule;
                                                                     
                                                      
    if (!(rule = malloc(sizeof(rule)))) return NULL;
    memset(rule, 0, sizeof(*rule));
    return rule;
}

the sizeof is missing a * here leading to the memset overfowing the just
malloc'd buffer.... sounds likesomething that should get fixed eventually
