Medium RSBAC Memory Leak Bugfix v1.2.4-4 has been released! Urgency is 
medium, it is recommended to apply this fix soon. 

4. General: Memory leak in logging code

    * Urgency: Medium.
    * What you see: System memory usage increases more or less 
slowly. /proc/slabinfo shows too many allocations in rsbac-256.
    * What is wrong: For each request log entry, several memory chunks 
of 256 Bytes get allocated. The chunk for attr_val_name does not get 
    * Implications: The system will run out of memory after a while, 
depending on the amount of request logging.
    * RSBAC versions affected: 1.2.4.
    * What you should do: Apply this patch (MD5 / GnuPG Cert) to get 
the bug corrected, recompile the kernel, reinstall and reboot.
