Debian Security Advisory DSA-1569-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
May 06, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : cacti
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0783 CVE-2008-0785

The original update for cacti unfortunately introduced a regression.
Updated packages have been created to address this. For reference, the
full advisory text is quoted below.

It was discovered that Cacti, a systems and services monitoring frontend,
performed insufficient input sanitising, leading to cross site scripting
and SQL injection being possible.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.6i-3.4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.7b-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
