Zack Flack found several issues in monit, a utility for monitoring and managing daemons or similar programs.

CVE-2019-11454: An XSS vulnerabilitty has been reported that could be prevented by HTML escaping the log file content when viewed via Monit GUI.

CVE-2019-11455: A buffer overrun vulnerability has been reported in URL decoding.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1:5.4-2+deb7u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your monit packages.
