Description Laura Pardo 2019-01-10 16:48:08 UTC
A flaw was found in Nagios Core version 4.4.1 and earlier. The qh_help function is prone to a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability, which allows attacker to cause a local denial-of-service condition by sending a crafted payload to the listening UNIX socket.
