Description Tomas Hoger 2008-04-24 02:50:01 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2008-1926 to the following vulnerability:

Argument injection vulnerability in login (login-utils/login.c) in
util-linux-ng 2.14 and earlier makes it easier for remote attackers to
hide activities by modifying portions of log events, as demonstrated
by appending an "addr=" statement to the login name, aka "audit log
injection."
