Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: collectd: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201803-10)
Severity: high
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: 2018-03-22
Bug(s): #628540, #637538
ID: 201803-10


Gentoo's collectd package contains multiple vulnerabilities, the
worst of which may allow local attackers to escalate privileges.


collectd is a daemon which collects system and application performance
metrics periodically and provides mechanisms to store the values in a
variety of ways, for example in RRD files.

Affected Packages

Package: app-admin/collectd
Vulnerable: < 5.7.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 5.7.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Gentoo’s collectd package.
Please review the referenced CVE identifiers and bug entries for details.


A local attacker, who either is already collectd’s system user or
belongs to collectd’s group, could potentially gain root privileges and
cause a Denial of Service condition.
Remote attackers could cause a Denial of Service condition via specially
crafted SNMP responses.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All collectd users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/collectd-5.7.2-r1"
