    Debian Bug     : 452682
    
    Bas van Schaik discovered that the agentd process of Zabbix, a network
    monitor system, may run user-supplied commands as group id root, not
    zabbix, which may lead to a privilege escalation.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
    1:1.1.4-10etch1
    
    zabbix is not included in the oldstable distribution (sarge).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your zabbix packages.
