high Nessus Plugin ID 138985


New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for cacti, cacti-spine fixes the following issues :

- cacti 1.2.13 :

- Query XSS vulnerabilities require vendor package update (CVE-2020-11022 / CVE-2020-11023)

- Lack of escaping on some pages can lead to XSS exposure

- Update PHPMailer to 6.1.6 (CVE-2020-13625)

- SQL Injection vulnerability due to input validation failure when editing colors (CVE-2020-14295, boo#1173090)

- Lack of escaping on template import can lead to XSS exposure

- switch from cron to systemd timers (boo#1115436) :

+ cacti-cron.timer

+ cacti-cron.service

- avoid potential root escalation on systems with fs.protected_hardlinks=0 (boo#1154087): handle directory permissions in file section instead of using chown during post installation

- rewrote apache configuration to get rid of .htaccess files and explicitely disable directory permissions per default (only allow a limited, well-known set of directories)


Update the affected cacti / cacti-spine packages.
