|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Nagios: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200605-07)
Date: May 07, 2006
Updated: May 25, 2006
Bug(s): #132159, #133487
Nagios is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which may lead to remote
execution of arbitrary code.
Nagios is an open source host, service and network monitoring program.
Vulnerable: < 1.4.1
Unaffected: >= 1.4.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Sebastian Krahmer of the SuSE security team discovered a buffer
overflow vulnerability in the handling of a negative HTTP
A buffer overflow in Nagios CGI scripts under certain web servers
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a negative
content length HTTP header.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Nagios users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/nagios-core-1.4.1"
