Package : nagios
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2006-2162 CVE-2006-2489
BugTraq ID : 17879
Debian Bugs : 366682 366683 368193

A buffer overflow has been discovered in nagios, a host, service and
network monitoring and management system, that could be exploited by
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain nagios packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3-cvs.20050402-2.sarge.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4-1 and 2.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your nagios package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
