Description Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2014-04-19 17:03:17 UTC
This is not the same as CVE-2013-1362, but a new vulnerability instead.

There is no patch available from upstream, so I wrote one, and put it in our nrpe-2.15 when I did the version bump.
Comment 1 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2014-04-19 17:06:41 UTC
I have personally tested that my patch blocks this new vulnerability, and it does successfully block it.

please test and stable.

Comment 11 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2014-06-17 23:05:41 UTC
CVE-2014-2913 (
  ** DISPUTED ** Incomplete blacklist vulnerability in nrpe.c in Nagios Remote
  Plugin Executor (NRPE) 2.15 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute
  arbitrary commands via a newline character in the -a option to
  libexec/check_nrpe.  NOTE: this issue is disputed by multiple parties. It
  has been reported that the vendor allows newlines as "expected behavior."
  Also, this issue can only occur when the administrator enables the
  "dont_blame_nrpe" option in nrpe.conf despite the "HIGH security risk"
  warning within the comments.
