    Synopsis
    ========
    
    Icinga installs files with insecure permissions allowing root privilege
    escalation.
    
    Background
    ==========
    
    Icinga is an open source computer system and network monitoring
    application. It was originally created as a fork of the Nagios system
    monitoring application in 2009.
    
    Affected packages
    =================
    
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1  net-analyzer/icinga          < 1.14.2                 Vulnerable!
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
               to another package if one is available or wait for the
               existing packages to be marked stable by their
               architecture maintainers.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    It was discovered that Icinga's installed files have insecure
    permissions, possibly allowing root privilege escalation.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A local attacker could escalate privileges to root.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Gentoo has discontinued support for Icinga. We recommend that users
    unmerge Icinga:
    
      # emerge --unmerge "net-analyzer/icinga"
    
    NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining Icinga have discontinued
    support at this time. It may be possible that a new Gentoo developer
    will update Icinga at a later date. The natural replacement is Icinga 2
    (net-analyzer/icinga2).
