Description Murray McAllister 2014-08-21 07:52:06 UTC
Deutsche Telekom CERT Advisory DTC-A-20140820-001 notes a number of security flaws have been fixed in check-mk (a Nagios plug-in) versions 1.2.4p4 and 1.2.5i4.

These include cross site scripting to remote code execution (due to insecure pickle() use). Further details are available from their advisory:

Some (not all!) of the individual fixes:

That commit notes:

<b>Note:</b> This change makes the current Check_MK versions incompatible
to older versions.  In a mixed environment with old and new Check_MK versions or with old
and newer Python versions you have to force WATO to use the old
unsafe method by setting <tt>wato_legacy_eval = True<tt> in <tt>multisite.mk</tt>.
This can also be done with the new global WATO setting <i>Use unsafe legacy
encoding for distributed WATO</i>.

Comment 3 Andrea Veri 2014-09-14 22:09:32 UTC
Murray I'm a bit concerned about comment #2 as the multisite.mk file is actually modified by admins in many occasions and overwriting it definitely not a good solution but at the same time upgrading the package without 'wato_legacy_eval' flag set to true will result in WATO breakages.

Do you have any suggestion on how to handle the upgrade properly?

Comment 4 Murray McAllister 2014-09-16 07:38:30 UTC
Hello Andrea,

I do not have a solution that both fixes the issue and does not break any environments. Maybe wato_legacy_eval in wato.py (http://git.mathias-kettner.de/git/?p=check_mk.git;a=blobdiff;f=web/plugins/config/wato.py;h=317f59394bf731727b3662f5e38d6ffa21e3983c;hp=744dde1e35164c2442ad410f5d78ccc76431ca80;hb=192d41525502dc8de10ac99f57bd988450c17566;hpb=815e624ae4c406112721771de85e22cdef3cafe6) could be set to "True" for a time, allowing the upgrade and fixing the other issues. It could be changed back to False at a later date. On the other hand, this issue seems to be the pickle/important one :-/
