Description Gianluca Gabrielli 2021-08-20 13:52:48 UTC
Icinga is a monitoring system which checks the availability of network
resources, notifies users of outages, and generates performance data for
reporting. In versions 2.5.0 through 2.13.0, ElasticsearchWriter, GelfWriter,
InfluxdbWriter and Influxdb2Writer do not verify the server's certificate
despite a certificate authority being specified. Icinga 2 instances which
connect to any of the mentioned time series databases (TSDBs) using TLS over a
spoofable infrastructure should immediately upgrade to version 2.13.1, 2.12.6,
or 2.11.11 to patch the issue. Such instances should also change the credentials
(if any) used by the TSDB writer feature to authenticate against the TSDB. There
are no workarounds aside from upgrading.
