==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Nagios.

Software Description:
- nagios3: host/service/network monitoring and management system

Details:

It was discovered that Nagios incorrectly handled certain long strings. A
remote authenticated attacker could use this issue to cause Nagios to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly obtain sensitive
information. (CVE-2013-7108, CVE-2013-7205)

It was discovered that Nagios incorrectly handled certain long messages to
cmd.cgi. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Nagios to
crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1878)

Dawid Golunski discovered that Nagios incorrectly handled symlinks when
accessing log files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to
elevate privileges. In the default installation of Ubuntu, this should be
prevented by the Yama link restrictions. (CVE-2016-9566)
