Bug Fix Advisory rsyslog enhancement update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0785-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-05-19
Last updated on: 2011-05-19
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Enhanced rsyslog packages are now available.

The rsyslog packages provide an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon that
supports MySQL, syslog/TCP, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any
message part, and fine grain output format control. Rsyslog is compatible with
stock sysklogd, and can be used as a drop-in replacement. It is simple to set
up, with advanced features suitable for enterprise-class, encryption-protected
syslog relay chains.

These updated rsyslog packages add the following enhancement:

* With this update, rsyslog is built with the PIE (Position Independent
Executable) and RELRO (read-only relocations) flags, thus, increasing the
overall security. Also, rsyslog now owns the "/etc/pki/rsyslog" directory. A
ChangeLog which contains a record of changes made to the rsyslog package was
added to the existing documentation in the "/usr/share/doc/rsyslog-[VERSION]"
directory. (BZ#642994)

Users of rsyslog are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add
this enhancement.

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
