This bug was fixed in the package syslog-ng - 2.0.0-1ubuntu1.1

---------------
syslog-ng (2.0.0-1ubuntu1.1) gutsy-security; urgency=low

  * SECURITY UPDATE: Allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
     (crash) via a message with a timestamp that does not contain a trailing
     space, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
  * src/logmsg.c (log_msg_parse): fixed possible NULL pointer dereference
     in log message parsing, as done in upstream RCS
