openSUSE Security Update : cacti / cacti-spine (openSUSE-2020-1060)

high Nessus Plugin ID 138985



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.
