ChangeLog for 3.20.2 (v3-stable)

Version 3.20.2 [v3-stable] (rgerhards), 2008-12-04

  • re-release of 3.20.1 with an additional fix, that could also lead
    to DoS; 3.20.1 has been removed from the official download archives

  • security fix: imudp emitted a message when a non-permitted sender
    tried to send a message to it. This behaviour is operator-configurable.
    If enabled, a message was emitted each time. That way an attacker could
    effectively fill the disk via this facility. The message is now
    emitted only once in a minute (this currently is a hard-coded limit,
    if someone comes up with a good reason to make it configurable, we
    will probably do that).
