Amazon Linux AMI : munin (ALAS-2014-348)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 78291


The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.


The get_group_tree function in lib/Munin/Master/ in Munin before 2.0.18 allows remote nodes to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and memory consumption in the munin-html process) via crafted multigraph data.

Munin::Master::Node in Munin before 2.0.18 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (abort data collection for node) via a plugin that uses 'multigraph' as a multigraph service name.


Run 'yum update munin' to update your system.
