[GLSA-200506-20] Cacti: Several vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Cacti: Several vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-20
(Cacti: Several vulnerabilities)


Cacti fails to properly sanitize input which can lead to SQL injection
as well as PHP file inclusion.

Impact

A possible hacker could potentially exploit the file inclusion to execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the web server. A possible hacker
could exploit the SQL injection to gain information from the database.
Only systems with register_globals set to "On" are vulnerable to the
file inclusion bugs. Gentoo Linux ships with register_globals set to
"Off" by default.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
