Syslog does not print the year on log lines. Once I saw some strange
behaviour similar to yours. I had a script that grep'd the logs for
yesterday's date and sent it to me by e-mail. One day, I saw several
SSH attempts from IPs that were empty, and IPs being resolved to names
that were not the right ones. Then I logged in to the machine, looked
at /var/log/secure and realized what happened. The logs were over one
year old now. Maybe check /var/log/yum.log to see if that is what

By the way, you say "today's log file", but to what log file are you
referring? The output you show is not from /var/log/yum.log, is it
some post processing?
