Stunnel local arbitrary command execution vulnerability

Author: JT Smith

"Insecurely-structured calls to syslog() found in certain versions of

function in such a way that maliciously embedded format specifiers in
this data can cause the process to overwrite sections of its own
memory with arbitrary data." Full details at SecurityFocus.
