Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:015
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : cacti
Date : January 15, 2007
Affected: Corporate 4.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

SQL injection vulnerability in Cacti 0.8.6i and earlier, when
register_argc_argv is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary SQL commands via the (1) second or (2) third arguments to
cmd.php. NOTE: this issue can be leveraged to execute arbitrary
commands since the SQL query results are later used in the
polling_items array and popen function.

Updated packages are patched to address this issue.
