[Backports-security-announce] Security Update for nagios3

Jan Wagner uploaded a new package for nagios3 which fixed the following
security problem:

CVE-2008-5028, SA32610 and Debian Bug #504894

 Andreas Ericsson has discovered a vulnerability in Nagios, which can be
 exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.

 The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests to
 "cmd.cgi" without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This
 can be exploited to execute certain Nagios commands (e.g. to disable
 notifications) when a logged-in administrator visits a malicious web site.

For the etch-backports distribution the problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.6-1~bpo40+1. 

For the lenny distribution the problem will be fixed soon in
version 3.0.6-1.

For the sid distribution the problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.6-1.

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update nagios3
manually via "apt-get -t etch-backports install nagios".

We recommend to pin the backports repository to 200 so that new versions
of installed backports will be installed automatically:

Package: *
Pin: release a=etch-backports
Pin-Priority: 200
