Description Ben Liblit 2002-03-24 19:26:13 EST
Logwatch's modprobe filter expects module names to obey the Perl regular
expression "\w+".  However, this pattern does not include "-", so modules with
dashes in their names are not handled properly.

The filter script "/etc/log.d/scripts/services/modprobe" should be modified to
allow dashes in module names.
