<p>logrotate rotates, compresses, and mails system logs.</p>
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in logrotate. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker could use this flaw to truncate arbitrary system file,
to change file owner or mode on arbitrary system files, to conduct
symlink attacks and send arbitrary system files, to execute arbitrary
system commands, to cause abort in subsequent logrotate runs, to disclose
sensitive information, to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of
Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All logrotate users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-admin/logrotate-3.8.0"
