From $URL :
temp66 has reported a vulnerability in Nagios, which can be exploited by malicious people to
compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "get_history()" function (history.c)
within history.cgi when handling certain parameters, which can be exploited to cause a stack-based
buffer overflow via an overly long "host" parameter.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is reported in version 3.4.3. Other versions may also be affected.
No official solution is currently available.
A fix is available:
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the get_history function in
history.cgi in Nagios Core before 3.4.4, and Icinga 1.6.x before 1.6.2,
1.7.x before 1.7.4, and 1.8.x before 1.8.4, might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a long (1) host_name variable (host parameter) or
(2) svc_description variable.
@maintainer: Any plans for a bump to a non-affected version as described in CVE?
Bumped to 3.5.1, stabilization requested in bug 501200.
