Package : monit Version : 5.4-2+deb7u1 CVE ID : CVE-2016-7067

Adith Sudhakar discovered a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) issue in monit, a utility for monitoring hosts and services. An attacker could cause an authenticated admin to change monitoring for hosts/services through a forged link. This update fixes the vulnerability by adding CSRF protection via a security token and enforced POST requests for actions that cause changes to the monitoring.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 5.4-2+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your monit packages.
