Description

Bad formatting of Application Agents' log messages.
When authenticating through BoKS servc the client application can optionally supply a LOG= variable in the authentication request. This will instruct servc to automatically generate a generic auth-success or auth-fail message at the end of the authentication sequence. This feature is mostly used by BoKS Application Agents to save the extra network round-trip needed if the Application Agents should have sent an explicit log message.
An incorrect handling of timestamps in the log message could result in a corrupt log entry if this feature is used.

Resolution / Workaround
