Description Josh Bressers 2006-05-03 18:10:21 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #190612 +++

Buffer overflow in CGI scripts in Nagios 1.x before 1.4 and 2.x before
2.3 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a negative
content length (Content-Length) HTTP header.

It should be noted that apache 2 will not allow this condition to happen.

Thanks for the heads up.  I've sent the 2.3 update to buildsys and it should be
available soon.
