Debian DSA-2956-1 : icinga - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 74477
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Multiple security issues have been found in the Icinga host and network monitoring system (buffer overflows, cross-site request forgery, off-by ones) which could result in the execution of arbitrary code, denial of service or session hijacking.


Upgrade the icinga packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 1.7.1-7.
