Package : zabbix
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-6210
Debian Bug : 452682

Bas van Schaik discovered that the agentd process of Zabbix, a network
monitor system, may run user-supplied commands as group id root, not
zabbix, which may lead to a privilege escalation.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1:1.1.4-10etch1

zabbix is not included in the oldstable distribution (sarge).

We recommend that you upgrade your zabbix packages.

Upgrade instructions

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
