A security vulnerability has been found in version 4.x of the Xymon Systems Network Monitor tool
The error permits a remote attacker to delete files on the server running the Xymon trend-data daemon xymond_rrd. File deletion is done with the privileges of the user that Xymon is running with, so it is limited to files available to the userid running the Xymon service.
