Package: nagios-plugins
Version: 1.4-6sarge1
Severity: important


after installing the latest upgraded nagios-plugins package (Debian Security Advisory DSA-1495-1;
CVE-2007-5198 CVE-2007-5623) the check_ping plugin does not work anymore. 

I get the following error: 
./check_ping.org -v -H -w 3000.0,80% -c 5000.0,100%
 ==> CRITICAL - You need more args!!!
Could not open pipe: 

even if i add some arguments like follows: 
./check_ping.org -v -H -w 3000.0,80% -c 5000.0,100% -p 1 -4 -L
 ==> CRITICAL - You need more args!!!
Could not open pipe:  

please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions. 

kind regards,
Werner Detter
