    Package        : munin
    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-6188
    Debian Bug     : 855705
    
    Stevie Trujillo discovered a local file write vulnerability in munin, a
    network-wide graphing framework, when CGI graphs are enabled. GET
    parameters are not properly handled, allowing to inject options into
    munin-cgi-graph and overwriting any file accessible accessible by the
    user running the cgi-process.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.25-1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your munin packages.
