Recent discovery of Nagios XI vulnerabilities

The security of network management systems is a hot topic; it has captured the headlines time and again over the last nine months, including a number of high-profile incidents with wide-reaching cybersecurity impacts.

The recent discovery of a number of new security vulnerabilities in the Nagios network management system is significant, particularly considering that they could be exploited by chaining to achieve pre-authenticated remote code execution with the highest privileges, as well as lead to credential theft and phishing attacks. All of these potential consequences could have a dire financial and reputational impact, both for Nagios and their clients.

None of the ITRS solutions are affected by the Nagios XI vulnerabilities, as the core design in our product suite is different and unrelated to Nagios XI.

What does it mean for you?

If you happen to rely on Nagios to monitor your enterprise estate or IT infrastructure, it is essential that you review the recently discovered vulnerabilities and identify the remediation action which applies to your Nagios version.

To protect enterprise estates against cybersecurity threats, it is paramount to ensure that your cyber supply chain is secure and well protected against existing vulnerabilities and emerging threats.

At ITRS, we make security a priority and support our clients in maintaining operational resilience through our secure and scalable monitoring and analytics solutions.
