Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

USN-3215-1 fixed a vulnerability in Munin. The upstream patch caused a
regression leading to errors being appended to the log file. This
update fixes the problem.

It was discovered that Munin incorrectly handled CGI graphs. A remote
attacker could use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files as the
www-data user.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
