What about these?:

| However, I think that still #6 (shell injection) and #7 (logrotate
| DoS with strange characters in file names) should be considered
| vulnerabilities in logrotate: It would be reasonable to assume that you
| can use user input that's a valid (slash-less) filename as a (part of a)
| log file name (assuming that the program is running as the same user that
| inspects and rotates the logs, so the log directory being writable by
| the program would not be insecure per-se) without that file name being
| interpreted by a shell or causing logrotate to stop functioning,
| respectively.
