Debian DLA-560-2 : cacti regression update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92547
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThree security issues have been found in cacti :
auth_login.php allows remote authenticated users who use web authentication to bypass intended access restrictions by logging in as a user not in the cacti database.
A SQL injection vulnerability in tree.php allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the parent_id parameter in an item_edit action.
A SQL injection vulnerability in graph_view.php allows remote authenticated users to execute arbitrary SQL commands via the host_group_data parameter.
The fix for CVE-2016-2313 did not take into account guest users. This update fixes it.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.8a+dfsg-5+deb7u10.
We recommend that you upgrade your cacti packages.
