I started working for Nagios fairly recently and am in charge of development for core, plugins, ndo, nsca, and nrpe. I've been putting quite a lot of work into most of those and nrpe, in particular, has gotten a lot of attention.
The new version 3.0 (which should be released in a few weeks) addresses the payload size. It will handle 64K.
I wasn't aware of that particular security vulnerability, but I am now. Thank you. It will be addressed for the 3.0 release.
Other things that will be in 3.0:
o Better signal handling
o A bunch of bug fixes
o Major update to SSL/TLS processing
o Some code changes and major configure changes to handle multiple platforms, including different Linux distributions, AIX, HP-UX, Solaris, Mac OS X, and the *BSD's.
So yes, NRPE was not getting the attention it deserved but it is now!
