PACKAGE             : syslog-ng Premium Edition
VERSION             : 3.0.1b
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Nov 26, 2008


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Premium Edition (3.0.1b) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.0.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.

        NOTE: this release fixes a security problem CVE-2008-5110, see the
        changelog below for more details.

        * UNIX domain socket connect/disconnect events are only logged in
          verbose mode to avoid cluttering the system log.
        * Fixed a possible 100% CPU usage case on HP-UX. HP-UX may return
          POLLERR on its own without the other flags set, this was not
          properly handled by syslog-ng, causing it to spin on the CPU.
        * Fixed chroot() support to change into the chrooted directory after
          chroot is invoked. This fixes the security problem CVE-2008-5110.
          NOTE: this vulnerability is not exploitable on its own, it only
          makes breaking out of the jail somewhat easier. Please also NOTE
          that, even with this patch applied, it is still possible to
          break out of the jail if syslog-ng is running as root.
