This could be exploited by malicious local attackers to escalate their privileges from 'nagios' system user, or from a user belonging to 'nagios' group, to root. The exploit could enable the attackers to fully compromise the system on which a vulnerable Nagios version was installed. To obtain the necessary level of access (nagios user/group), the attackers could potentially use another Nagios vulnerability - CVE-2016-9565.
