CVE-2017-12847

Priority
Description
Nagios Core before 4.3.3 creates a nagios.lock PID file after dropping
privileges to a non-root account, which might allow local users to kill
arbitrary processes by leveraging access to this non-root account for
nagios.lock modification before a root script executes a "kill `cat
/pathname/nagios.lock`" command.
