More information:

Stevie Trujillo discovered a local file write vulnerability in munin, a network-wide graphing framework, when CGI graphs are enabled. GET parameters are not properly handled, allowing to inject options into munin-cgi-graph and overwriting any file accessible by the user running the cgi-process.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.25-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your munin packages.
