Package : nagios-plugins
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-5198 CVE-2007-5623

A problem with the build system of the nagios-plugins package from old
stable (Sarge) lead to check_procs not being included for the i386
architecture. This update fixes this regression. For reference the
original advisory text below:

Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in two of
the plugins for the Nagios network monitoring and management system.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:

CVE-2007-5198

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the parser for HTTP
Location headers (present in the check_http module).

CVE-2007-5623

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the check_snmp module.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.5-1etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been
fixed in version 1.4-6sarge2.

We recommend that you upgrade your nagios-plugins package.
