Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2009-03-23 18:04:23 EDT
Fedora 10 should be updated to 3.0.6 to correct this issue (3.0.6 is currently in testing).

For Fedora 9 and HPC which provide Nagios 2.x, this is a non-issue as this is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-5028 and should therefore only affect Nagios 3.0.5 (so only affecting Fedora 10).
Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2009-03-24 10:59:39 EDT
Sorry, this one refers to an incomplete CVE-2008-5027 fix, not -5028 (but again only affects Nagios 3.0.5).
