Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in cacti, a round-robin
database (RRD) tool that helps create graphs from database
information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project
identifies the following problems:
Maciej Piotr Falkiewicz and an anonymous researcher discovered an
input validation bug that permits a possible hacker to include arbitrary
PHP code from remote sites which will permit the execution of
arbitrary code on the server running cacti.
Due to missing input validation cacti permits a remote attacker to
insert arbitrary SQL statements.

which will permit the execution of arbitrary code on the server
Stefan Esser discovered that the update for the above mentioned
vulnerabilities does not perform proper input validation to
protect against common attacks.
Stefan Esser discovered that the update for CVE-2005-1525 permits
remote attackers to modify session information to gain rights
and disable the use of addslashes to protect against SQL
