Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Nagios. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A local attacker, who either is already Nagios’s system user or belongs to Nagios’s group, could potentially escalate privileges.
In addition, a remote attacker could read or write to arbitrary files by spoofing a crafted response from the Nagios RSS feed server.
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-4.2.4"
