openSUSE Security Update: NRPE metacharacter filtering omission
Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2013:0624-1
An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.
NRPE (the Nagios Remote Plug-In Executor) allows the
passing of $() to plugins/scripts which, if run under bash,
will execute that shell command under a subprocess and pass
the output as a parameter to the called script. Using this,
it is possible to get called scripts, such as check_http,
to execute arbitrary commands under the uid that
NRPE/nagios is running as (typically, 'nagios').
With this update NRPE will deny remote requests
containing a bash command substitution.
To install this openSUSE Security Update use YaST online_update.
