Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Icinga: Root privilege escalation (GLSA 202007-31)
Severity: high
Exploitable: local
Date: 2020-07-27
Bug(s): #638186
ID: 202007-31


Icinga installs files with insecure permissions allowing root
privilege escalation.


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: net-analyzer/icinga
Vulnerable: < 1.14.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


It was discovered that Icinga’s installed files have insecure
permissions, possibly allowing root privilege escalation.


A local attacker could escalate privileges to root.


There is no known workaround at this time.


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
