Details:
a) application
b) problem
c) CVSS
d) detailed description

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
a1) check_mk (git hash: 4b71709) [CVE-2014-5338]

b1) Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

c1) CVSS 8.5 AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C

d1) The check_mk application is susceptible to reflected XSS attacks. This is mainly the result of improper output encoding. Reflected XSS can be triggered by sending a malicious URL to a user of the check_mk application. Once the XSS attack is triggered, the attacker has access to the full check_mk (and nagios) application with the access rights of the logged in victim.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a2) check_mk (git hash: 4b71709) [CVE-2014-5339]

b2) Write access to config (.mk) files in arbitrary places on the filesystem

c2) CVSS 4.9 AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:P

d2) The check_mk application does allow an attacker to write check_mk config files (.mk files) on arbitrary locations on the server filesystem

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a3) check_mk (git hash: 4b71709) [CVE-2014-5340]

b3) Code executing due to insecure input handling

c3) CVSS 9.3 AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

d3) The check_mk applications uses insecure API calls, which allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the server by issuing just a single URL. The reason for this is the usage of the insecure "pickle" API call.
Additionally, there are several locations in the code which allow calling this method without any CSRF tokens in place. This flaw can also be triggered as a non-admin user (for instance as a normal monitoring user, who only has limited capabilities in the application).
