syslogd accepts arbitrary timestamps on messages
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:06 EDT
syslogd accepts arbitrary timestamps on messages read from /dev/log. If
the message matches the pattern "??? ?? ??:??:?? " then it will be treated
as a timestamp. syslogd should always prefix the message with the local
machine's timestamp, and for backwards compatability, remove anything that
looks like a timestamp from the start of the message to avoid the
timestamp appearing twice. This is similar to bug id 10222.
Just clearing out old bugs here. This one was fixed ages ago!
Current version of sysklogd is 1.41-22 .
