Details

It was discovered that Rsyslog incorrectly handled invalid PRI values. An
attacker could use this issue to send malformed messages to the Rsyslog
server and cause it to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service
and possibly message loss. (CVE-2014-3634, CVE-2014-3683)

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 12.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
