Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : munin vulnerability (USN-3215-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 97523


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


It was discovered that Munin incorrectly handled CGI graphs. A remote attacker could use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files as the www-data user.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected munin package.
