Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Nagios: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201710-20)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: 2017-10-18
Bug(s): #602216, #628086
ID: 201710-20


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Nagios, the worst of
which could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.


Nagios is an open source host, service and network monitoring program.

Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/nagios-core
Vulnerable: < 4.3.3
Unaffected: >= 4.3.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Nagios. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


A remote attacker could possibly escalate privileges to root, thus
allowing the execution of arbitrary code, by leveraging CVE-2016-9565.
Additionally, a local attacker could cause a Denial of Service condition
against arbitrary processes due to the improper dropping of privileges.


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-4.3.3"
