Relative to what we previously posted, existence of this reference does not simplify the situation, because it says "Two vulnerabilities have been reported" and then perhaps proceeds to state what only one of the vulnerabilities is. Or, alternatively, maybe that Secunia advisory is implicitly categorizing $target and $target_cgi as separate vulnerabilities. Does anyone wish to contribute the information about whether the first problem fix (involving allowable characters in the $target and $target_cgi variables in lib/HTTPServer.pm) was part of 3.3.1, or only part of 3.4.0? If not, we can have someone at MITRE try to locate a copy of 3.3.1 later. https://github.com/mikaku/Monitorix/blob/master/Changes says Fixed to correctly sanitize the input string in the built-in HTTP server which led into a number of security vulnerabilities. [#30] in both the 3.3.1 and 3.4.0 changelog entries. Also, as we previously posted, the vendor referred to "two security issues ... not covered yet in the previous 3.3.1 version" when announcing 3.4.0. We see that there is a second XSS-related commit involving the PATH_INFO (aka the $url variable) but this isn't necessarily "two security issues" by itself. So, we still don't know how many CVE IDs to assign, and we would prefer not to assign any CVE IDs until the meaning and scope of each ID is at least somewhat understood. - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJSp1A6AAoJEKllVAevmvmstTsH/iCuzA8UqbTbMQCYQ7PfNFE5 O0uYBMLgjBq801xz+aLF0FIhlm6Ruac3qfi7pXv+CV9OgtcHqoOuLTsnrUM4vNi/ dCH5o3l+5aD4DMasP/Q8upSwqJl8GgUhyr78lgNRUxA/Wdje6o4+HM/v7lLLr6Hf uWLWndMzSzDw79R3RChz4cnXhDRYrSesBEDGdwFwN4/wRQ4Tp9WX3ocRGvhxw1fk 5yo789nJzL3jYhXczqcUUR50OBQREUmB7eF1Kt4wU0idumaAm3mWARxnaWoA5Xgu dEyHhaNpu/uml4m1NswPmar9L1hh2kOORAmoY5KyhH6y2UIPmQDEKEcSX8tenPY= =JnLr -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
