Debian DSA-3794-1 : munin - security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 97398


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


Stevie Trujillo discovered a local file write vulnerability in munin, a network-wide graphing framework, when CGI graphs are enabled. GET parameters are not properly handled, allowing to inject options into munin-cgi-graph and overwriting any file accessible by the user running the cgi-process.


Upgrade the munin packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.25-1+deb8u1.
