CVE: CVE-2020-6581 , CVE-2020-6582
Updated nrpe packages fix security vulnerabilities: Nagios NRPE 3.2.1 has Insufficient Filtering because, for example, nasty_metachars interprets \n as the character \ and the character n (not as the \n newline sequence). This can cause command injection (CVE-2020-6581). Nagios NRPE 3.2.1 has a Heap-Based Buffer Overflow, as demonstrated by interpretation of a small negative number as a large positive number during a bzero call (CVE-2020-6582).
