Icinga installs files with insecure permissions allowing root privilege escalation.
|Package||net-analyzer/icinga on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.14.2|
Icinga is an open source computer system and network monitoring application. It was originally created as a fork of the Nagios system monitoring application in 2009.
It was discovered that Icinga’s installed files have insecure permissions, possibly allowing root privilege escalation.
A local attacker could escalate privileges to root.
There is no known workaround at this time.
Gentoo has discontinued support for Icinga. We recommend that users unmerge Icinga:
# emerge --unmerge "net-analyzer/icinga"
NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining Icinga have discontinued support at this time. It may be possible that a new Gentoo developer will update Icinga at a later date. The natural replacement is Icinga 2 (net-analyzer/icinga2).
