Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : munin (MDVSA-2013:297)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Updated munin packages fix security vulnerabilities :

The Munin::Master::Node module of munin does not properly validate
certain data a node sends. A malicious node might exploit this to
drive the munin-html process into an infinite loop with memory
exhaustion on the munin master (CVE-2013-6048).

A malicious node, with a plugin enabled using multigraph as a
multigraph service name, can abort data collection for the entire node
the plugin runs on (CVE-2013-6359).
