I have just released rsyslog 1.10.1. This release is slightly
unscheduled. It orginally should have been released in a few days with
some more enhancements. However, we have discovered a SQL injection
vulnerability in rsyslog and decided to release a fix for the
development branch as soon as possible (thankfully the code was at an
interim milestone, so it was easy to do).
The most important feature of 1.10.1 obviously is the fix for the SQL
injection vulnerability. Besides that, it offers a fix in handling
broken MySQL connections. Feature-wise, it adds the ability to execute
scripts (and other programs) on message reception. Together with the new
filtering engine, this can, for example, be used to generate email
alerts on important events.
The change log can be found at http://www.rsyslog.com/Article36.phtml.
I hope this release is useful. Please expect the originally scheduled
feature set some time next week. Among others, it will bring additional
comparison operations for the new filter engine.
