    The previous nagios2 update introduced a regression, which caused status.cgi to segfault when used directly without specifying the 'host' variable. This update fixes the problem. For reference the original advisory text follows.

    The previous nagios2 update introduced a regression, which caused
    status.cgi to segfault when used directly without specifying the 'host'
    variable. This update fixes the problem. For reference the original
    advisory text follows.
    
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been found in nagios2, ahost/service/network
    monitoring and management system. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    
    Several cross-site scripting issues via several parameters were
    discovered in the CGI scripts, allowing attackers to inject arbitrary
    HTML code. In order to cover the different attack vectors, these issues
    have been assigned CVE-2007-5624, CVE-2007-5803 and CVE-2008-1360.
    
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6-2+etch5.
    
    The stable distribution (lenny) does not include nagios2 and nagios3 is
    not affected by these problems.
    
    The testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid)
    do not contain nagios2 and nagios3 is not affected by these problems.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your nagios2 packages.
