Package : ntop Problem type : remote exploit Debian-specific: noThe updated version of ntop (1.2a7-10) that was released on August 5 was found to still be insecure: it was still exploitable using buffer overflows. Using this technique it was possible to run arbitrary code as the user who ran ntop in web mode.
In order to permantly fix these problems an updated package has been released that disables web mode completely. The version of this fix is 1.2a7-11.
We recommend you upgrade or remove your ntop package immediately.
