|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: collectd: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201803-10)
Exploitable: local, remote
Bug(s): #628540, #637538
Gentoo's collectd package contains multiple vulnerabilities, the
worst of which may allow local attackers to escalate privileges.
collectd is a daemon which collects system and application performance
metrics periodically and provides mechanisms to store the values in a
variety of ways, for example in RRD files.
Vulnerable: < 5.7.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 5.7.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Gentoo’s collectd package.
Please review the referenced CVE identifiers and bug entries for details.
A local attacker, who either is already collectd’s system user or
belongs to collectd’s group, could potentially gain root privileges and
cause a Denial of Service condition.
Remote attackers could cause a Denial of Service condition via specially
crafted SNMP responses.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All collectd users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/collectd-5.7.2-r1"
