Name        : check-mk
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 1.2.4p5
Release     : 1.fc19
URL         : http://mathias-kettner.de/check_mk
Summary     : A new general purpose Nagios-plugin for retrieving data
Description :
check-mk is a general purpose Nagios-plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a
new approach for collecting data from operating systems and network components.
It obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp and it has many
benefits, the most important are a significant reduction of CPU usage on
the Nagios host and an automatic inventory of items to be checked on hosts.

Update Information:

New upstream release providing many security fixes.

* Wed Sep 17 2014 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.4p5-1
- New upstream release. Fixes CVEs:
  - CVE-2014-5338 
  - CVE-2014-5339
  - CVE-2014-5340 (BZ: #1132337, #1132339, #1132341)
- Stop shipping the j4p_performance plugin as it's deprecated. (BZ: #1133068)
- Turn Wato_Legacy_Eval as True as we want to prevent breakages
  between machines running different Python and/or check-mk releases.
  This is necessary after the 'ast' move from 'pickle' (that was
  generating a insecure API call), however the 'ast' module is still
  not available for RHEL / CentOS 5 machines. The patch is there to 
  avoid miscommunications between different distribution releases. More

- Make sure the proper permissions are given to /var/lib/check_mk_agent/job
  to prevent any hard or symlink to be created by a normal user and pointing
  to any file on the filesystem exposing it on the check-mk-agent output being
  run as root. Fixes BZ #1101669.

- New upstream release.
* Thu Aug 29 2013 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> - 1.2.2-6
- Make sure the waitmax binary gets built. Also thanks to John Reddy
  for his initial work on this. (BZ: #982769)
- Add an if statement for RHEL and make sure auto provides are not set
  automatically. (BZ #985285)
- Requires set to mod_python on RHEL, no mod_wsgi migration yet on EPEL. (BZ: #987852)
- Fix the perl command that was doing the needed substitution on the 
  /usr/bin/check_mk_agent's configuration directories. Thanks Brainslug for the
  report. (BZ: #989793)
- In addition to a customized 'defaults' file, add a defaults.py accordingly. (BZ: #987859)
* Fri Aug  2 2013 Petr Pisar <ppisar at redhat.com> - 1.2.2-5
- Do not provide from a documentation
* Sun Apr 28 2013 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> 1.2.2-5

  is correct on both x86_64 and i686 systems.
* Sat Apr 27 2013 Andrea Veri <averi at fedoraproject.org> 1.2.2-4
- Change check-mk-agent's binary name to check_mk_agent to match xinetd's file. (BZ: #956489)
- Remove other operating systems agents, we definitely don't need them on this package.
- Make sure that check_mk_templates gets shipped into /etc/nagios/conf.d. (BZ: #956492)
- Don't ship the auto-generated defaults file, but provide it with our customizations. This actually
  fixes BZ: #956496 since we modify the checkresults path to be the same as the one provided
  by Nagios itself, thus no need to create an additional directory.
