Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-03-24 19:18:13 UTC
Nagios NRPE 3.2.1 has a Heap-Based Buffer Overflow, as demonstrated by interpretation of a small negative number as a large positive number during a bzero call.


Comment 1 Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2020-03-24 19:19:00 UTC
Created nrpe tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1816816]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1816814]

Comment 2 Hardik Vyas 2020-03-25 14:18:18 UTC

Nagios is considered deprecated. Nagios plugins and Nagios server are no longer maintained or supported. Refer following release notes for details: "https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_gluster_storage/3.5/html-single/3.5_release_notes/index". The older version of nrpe which was shipped with Red Hat Gluster Storage does not support v3 packet format.
