A security issue has been reported in rootsh, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to bypass the logging functionality.
The problem is caused due to an input validation error when handling certain xterm escape sequences. This can be exploited to generate empty syslog messages, allowing users to hide their actions in a syslog-only environment.
