Several security issues were fixed in Munin.

Software Description:
- munin: Network-wide graphing framework


It was discovered that the Munin qmailscan plugin incorrectly handled
temporary files. A local attacker could use this issue to possibly
overwrite arbitrary files. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS,
Ubuntu 11.10, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. (CVE-2012-2103)

It was discovered that Munin incorrectly handled plugin state file
permissions. An attacker obtaining privileges of the munin user could use
this issue to escalate privileges to root. (CVE-2012-3512)

It was discovered that Munin incorrectly handled specifying an alternate
configuration file. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the web server. This issue
only affected Ubuntu 12.10. (CVE-2012-3513)
