Package        : zabbix
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-6210
Debian Bug     : 452682

Bas van Schaik discovered that the agentd process of Zabbix, a network
monitor system, may run user-supplied commands as group id root, not
zabbix, which may lead to a privilege escalation.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1:1.1.4-10etch1

zabbix is not included in the oldstable distribution (sarge).

We recommend that you upgrade your zabbix packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch
- -------------------------------

Stable updates are available for alpha, amd64, arm, hppa, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, s390 and sparc.
