Vulnerability Details : CVE-2005-1061

The secure script in LogWatch before 2.6-2 allows attackers to prevent LogWatch from detecting malicious activity via certain strings in the secure file that are later used as part of a regular expression, which causes the parser to crash, aka "logwatch log processing regular expression DoS."
