[GLSA-200404-16] Multiple new security vulnerabilities in monit

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Multiple new security vulnerabilities in monit

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200404-16
(Multiple new security vulnerabilities in monit)


Monit has several vulnerabilities in its HTTP interface : a buffer overflow
vulnerability in the authentication handling code and a off-by-one error in
the POST method handling code.

Impact

A possible hacker may exploit the off-by-one error to crash the Monit daemon and
create a denial of service condition, or cause a buffer overflow that would
permit arbitrary code to be executed with root rights.

Workaround

A workaround is not currently known for this issue. All users are advised
to upgrade to the latest version of the affected package.
