Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : ganglia (MDVSA-2013:080)

High Nessus Plugin ID 66094


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


Updated ganglia packages fix security vulnerability :

There is a security issue in Ganglia Web going back to at least 3.1.7 which can lead to arbitrary script being executed with web user privileges possibly leading to a machine compromise.

Additionally, an issue where active NFS mounts caused gmond to not start has also been corrected.

When installing ganglia-gmetad, the installer uses the non-existent nobody, and not nogroup, as the group when changing new ownership of files.


Update the affected packages.
