Fedora Update Notification
2018-03-30 12:38:03.456035

Name : monitorix
Product : Fedora 28
Version : 3.10.1
Release : 1.fc28
URL : http://www.monitorix.org
Summary : A free, open source, lightweight system monitoring tool
Description :
Monitorix is a free, open source and lightweight system monitoring tool
designed to monitor as many services and system resources as possible. It has
been created to be used under production Linux/UNIX servers, but due to its
simplicity and small size may also be used on embedded devices as well.

Update Information:

Prior Monitorix versions are vulnerable to cross-site scripting (XSS), caused
improper validation of user-supplied input by the monitorix.cgi file. A remote
attacker could exploit this vulnerability using some of the arguments provided
(graph= or when=) in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a
victim's Web
browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is
clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's
based authentication credentials. I would like to thank Sebastian Gilon from
TestArmy for reporting that issue. The rest of bugs fixed are, as always,
reflected in the Changes file. All users still using older versions are
and encouraged to upgrade to this version, which resolves this security issue.

This update can be installed with the "dnf" update program. Use
su -c 'dnf upgrade monitorix' at the command line.
For more information, refer to the dnf documentation available at
