Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3612-1
March 28, 2018

librelp vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


librelp could be made to crash or run programs if it received specially
crafted network traffic.

Software Description:
- librelp: Reliable Event Logging Protocol (RELP) library


Bas van Schaik and Kevin Backhouse discovered that librelp incorrectly
handled checking certain x509 certificates. A remote attacker able to
connect to rsyslog could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  librelp0                        1.2.2-2ubuntu1.1

After a standard system update you need to restart rsyslog to make all the
necessary changes.
