Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-02-27 19:34:22 UTC
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the
logrotate utility performed email notifications about
rotating of out of existence log files. A local attacker
could use this flaw to conduct symlink or hardlink attacks
and send arbitrary system files (if the logrotate utility
was run under privileged system user, root) to the selected
email recipient.
