The monitoring service running on the remote host may be affected by
an arbitrary command execution vulnerability.
The version of Nagios Remote Plugin Executor (NRPE) running on the
remote host has command argument processing enabled and accepts the
newline character. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit
this issue to execute arbitrary commands within the context of the
vulnerable application by appending those commands via a newline
character in the '-a' option to libexec/check_nrpe.
