Debian DLA-560-2 : cacti regression update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92547


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Three 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.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected cacti package.
