Debian DLA-2461-1 : zabbix security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 143193


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Zabbix, a network monitoring solution. An attacker may remotely execute code on the zabbix server, and redirect to external links through the zabbix web frontend.


Zabbix allows open redirect via the request parameter.


Zabbix allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

This update also includes several other bug fixes and improvements.
For more information please refer to the upstream changelog file.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 1:3.0.31+dfsg-0+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your zabbix packages.

For the detailed security status of zabbix please refer to its security tracker page at:

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


Upgrade the affected packages.
