Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Nagios, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions or by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to perform unspecified actions e.g. when a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.
2) An unspecified error can be exploited to bypass authorisation and submit certain commands to the Nagios process.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 3.0.5.
Solution: Update to version 3.0.5.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) The vendor credits Tim Starling.
