3. Description:

Nagios is a program that monitors hosts and services on your network, and
has the ability to send email or page alerts when a problem arises or is
resolved.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that an attacker who could control the content of an RSS
feed could execute code remotely using the Nagios web interface. This flaw
could be used to gain access to the remote system and in some scenarios
control over the system. (CVE-2016-9565)

* A privilege escalation flaw was found in the way Nagios handled log
files. An attacker able to control the Nagios logging configuration (the
'nagios' user/group) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges to
root. (CVE-2016-9566)
