==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.10:
nagios3 3.0.2-1ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Nagios to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that Nagios was vulnerable to a Cross-site request forger=
y
(CSRF) vulnerability. If an authenticated nagios user were tricked into
clicking a link on a specially crafted web page, an attacker could trigger
commands to be processed by Nagios and execute arbitrary programs. This
update alters Nagios behaviour by disabling submission of CMD_CHANGE comman=
ds.
(CVE-2008-5028)

It was discovered that Nagios did not properly parse commands submitted usi=
ng
the web interface. An authenticated user could use a custom form or a brows=
er
addon to bypass security restrictions and submit unauthorized commands.
