Description

LSAC(v2)
Logwatch is a customizable, pluggable log-monitoring system. It will go through your logs for a given period of time and make a report in the areas that you wish with the detail that you wish. Easy to use - works right out of the package on many systems. This updated logwatch package includes fixes for the following bugs: * Due to an incorrect regular expression, positive changes in temperatures reported by the smartd daemon were shown as unmatched entries in the logwatch output. This update fixes the faulty regular expression and temperature log information is now displayed correctly. (BZ#578806) * Prior to this update, logwatch did not correctly parse the RSYSLOG_FileFormat time stamps and displayed them as unmatched entries. With this update, parsing of the rsyslog time stamps has been fixed and works as expected. (BZ#583607) * Yum's "applydate" time ranges were not correctly parsed by logwatch and were displayed as unmatched entries. This has been fixed and "applydate" time ranges are no longer displayed as unmatched entries. (BZ#583721) * Xen virtual console logins were not correctly parsed by logwatch and were displayed as unmatched entries. This update fixes this bug. (BZ#595068) * Logins initiated with the "su -" or "su -l" command were not correctly parsed by logwatch and were displayed as unmatched entries. This update fixes this bug. (BZ#668067) * SSH Kerberos (GSS) logins were not correctly parsed by logwatch and were displayed as unmatched entries. This update fixes this bug. (BZ#684577) All users of logwatch are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
