Updated munin packages fixes two security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 19 Dec 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3
CVE: CVE-2013-6048 , CVE-2013-6359


Updated munin packages fix security vulnerabilities:

The Munin::Master::Node module of munin does not properly validate certain
data a node sends. A malicious node might exploit this to drive the munin-html
process into an infinite loop with memory exhaustion on the munin master

A malicious node, with a plugin enabled using "multigraph" as a multigraph
service name, can abort data collection for the entire node the plugin runs on
