GLSA-200408-21 : Cacti: SQL injection vulnerability
High Nessus Plugin ID 14577
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200408-21 (Cacti: SQL injection vulnerability)
Cacti is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack where an attacker may inject SQL into the Username field.
An attacker could compromise the Cacti service and potentially execute programs with the permissions of the user running Cacti. Only systems with php_flag magic_quotes_gpc set to Off are vulnerable. By default, Gentoo Linux installs PHP with this option set to On.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version of Cacti.
SolutionAll users should upgrade to the latest available version of Cacti, as follows:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1' # emerge '>=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1'
