Every user should update




The audit daemon (auditd) would leak memory when log_format=NOLOG was specified in /etc/audit/auditd.conf. This configuration is typically used when forwarding log information to other hosts via the network rather than performing local logging.

In addition, auditctl would fail to parse negative arguments for a0-a3 rules.


This update is provided as a set of RPM packages that can easily be installed onto a running system by using the YaST online update module. Please install the update.
