Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56734
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-282-1 (nagios)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-282-1 (nagios)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to nagios
announced via advisory USN-282-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: nagios-common

The nagios CGI scripts did not sufficiently check the validity of the
HTTP Content-Length attribute. By sending a specially crafted HTTP
request with a negative Content-Length value to the Nagios server, a
remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with web
server privileges.

Please note that the Apache 2 web server already checks for valid
Content-Length values, so installations using Apache 2 (the only web
server officially supported in Ubuntu) are not vulnerable to this
flaw.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2:1.3-0+pre6ubuntu0.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04), or
2:1.3-cvs.20050402-4ubuntu3.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
