Package        : ganglia-monitor-core
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-0241

Spike Spiegel discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in gmetad, the
meta-daemon for the ganglia cluster monitoring toolkit, which could be
triggered via a request with long path names and might enable
arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.7-3.1etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.5.7-5.

For the testing distribution (lenny), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your ganglia-monitor-core 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.
