Date Reported:
25 Feb 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 855705.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-6188.
More information:

Stevie Trujillo discovered a command injection vulnerability in munin, a network-wide graphing framework. The CGI script for drawing graphs allowed to pass arbitrary GET parameters to local shell command, allowing command execution as the user that runs the webserver.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.6-4+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your munin packages.
