Comment 2 David Walser 2017-02-26 17:18:28 CET
Debian has issued an advisory for this on February 25:

It was also fixed upstream in 2.0.31.

Patched packages uploaded for Mageia 5 and Cauldron.


Updated munin packages fix security vulnerability:

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 by the user running the cgi-process


Updated packages in core/updates_testing:

from munin-2.0.25-1.1.mga5.src.rpm

MGA5-32 on Asus A6000VM
No installation issues
Ref bug 11944 Comment 4, when pointing to 
I get Error 403
and in /var/log/httpd/error_log I get
[Tue Feb 28 14:25:06.656432 2017] [autoindex:error] [pid 3574] [client] AH01276: Cannot serve directory /var/lib/munin/html/: No matching DirectoryIndex (index.php,index.phtml,index.html) found, and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive

The /etc/httpd/conf/sites.d/munin.conf shows 'Require all granted' for each directory and aliases in place.

I googled on these errors and all I found referred to /etc/munin/apache.conf, but this file does not exist, nor is there any mentionof munin in the httpd.conf file.

Let's get this one out.

Installed all of the munin packages.

Starting with http://guide.munin-monitoring.org/en/latest/installation/configuration.html#configure-web-server
but took some digging to figure out.

[root@i5v ~]# munin-node-configure --shell --families=contrib,auto | sh -x
# The following plugins caused errors:
# hddtemp_smartctl:
#       Junk printed to stderr
# http_loadtime:
#       Non-zero exit during autoconf (2)
# netstat_multi:
#       Wrong amount of autoconf
# proc:
#       In family 'auto' but doesn't have 'autoconf' capability
# samba:
#       Junk printed to stderr
+ ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/apc_nis /etc/munin/plugins/apc_nis
+ ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/hddtempd /etc/munin/plugins/hddtempd
+ ln -s /usr/share/munin/plugins/meminfo /etc/munin/plugins/meminfo

Enabled and then started the services and apache ...
[root@i5v system]# systemctl enable munin-fcgi-html.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl enable munin-fcgi-graph.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl enable munin-node.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl start munin-fcgi-html.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl start munin-fcgi-graph.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl start munin-node.service
[root@i5v system]# systemctl restart httpd.service
Then, as regular user was able to access http://localhost/munin/
and confirmed the graphs are working, and at least some have data.

Installed the updates, restarted apache and confirmed still working.

Same testing completed on my x86_64 Mageia 5 virtualbox host.

Validating the update.
