Cacti copy_cacti_user SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks if Cacti's copy_cacti_user.php is remotely accessible

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a SQL
injection issue.

Description :

The remote host is running Cacti, a web-based frontend to RRDTool for
network graphing.

The version of Cacti on the remote host does not properly check
whether ensure the 'copy_cacti_user.php' script is being run from a
commandline and fails to sanitize user-supplied input before using it
in database queries. Provided PHP's 'register_argc_argv' parameter is
enabled, which is the default, a possible hacker can leverage this issue to
launch SQL injection attack against the underlying database and, for
example, add arbitrary administrative users.
