Ganglia Web Backend < 3.0.7 process_path Function Overflow

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running the Ganglia Web Backend (gmetad). This version of Ganglia is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow within the process_path() function. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need the ability to send malformed data to the Ganglia gmetad process. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker gaining control of the remote system.

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.0.7 or higher.
