 Package : munin
 Date    : December 20, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated munin packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 The Munin::Master::Node module of munin does not properly validate
 certain data a node sends. A malicious node might exploit this to drive
 the munin-html process into an infinite loop with memory exhaustion
 on the munin master (CVE-2013-6048).
 
 A malicious node, with a plugin enabled using multigraph as a
 multigraph service name, can abort data collection for the entire
 node the plugin runs on (CVE-2013-6359).
