==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-698-3          December 23, 2008
nagios2 vulnerabilities
CVE-2008-5027, CVE-2008-5028
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  nagios2                         2.11-1ubuntu1.4

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Nagios to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

It was discovered that Nagios was vulnerable to a Cross-site request forgery
(CSRF) vulnerability. If an authenticated nagios user were tricked into
clicking a link on a specially crafted web page, an attacker could trigger
commands to be processed by Nagios and execute arbitrary programs. This
update alters Nagios behaviour by disabling submission of CMD_CHANGE commands.

It was discovered that Nagios did not properly parse commands submitted using
the web interface. An authenticated user could use a custom form or a browser
addon to bypass security restrictions and submit unauthorized commands.
