 Package : xymon
 Date    : August 13, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated xymon package fixes security vulnerability:
 
 A security vulnerability has been found in version 4.x of the Xymon
 Systems & Network Monitor tool
 
 The error permits a remote attacker to delete files on the server
 running the Xymon trend-data daemon xymond_rrd. File deletion is
 done with the privileges of the user that Xymon is running with,
 so it is limited to files available to the userid running the Xymon
 service. This includes all historical data stored by the Xymon
 monitoring system. (CVE-2013-4173)
