New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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


Updated nagios packages fix security vulnerability :

Stack-based buffer overflow in the cmd_submitf function in cgi/cmd.c in Nagios Core, possibly 4.0.3rc1 and earlier, and Icinga before 1.8.6, 1.9 before 1.9.5, and 1.10 before 1.10.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a long message to cmd.cgi (CVE-2014-1878).
