Description Dominic Hargreaves 2005-05-06 23:54:21 UTC
The secure script in LogWatch before 2.6-2 allows attackers to prevent LogWatch
from detecting malicious activity via certain strings in the secure file that
are later used as part of a regular expression, which causes the parser to
crash, aka "logwatch log processing regular expression DoS."

Probably affects at least rh 7.3.
