Are you sure that's the only line you have for /var/log/security in
your /etc/newsyslog.conf file? The distributed config file has:
/var/log/security 600 10 100 * JC
Obviously you have a different entry from that, but did you remove
the original entry?

>/etc/rc.d/syslogd restart and newsyslog restart have been performed.
I tried changing the permissions-field in my newsyslog.conf from 600
to 644, and newsyslog worked correctly for me.
