Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Cacti: SQL injection vulnerability (GLSA 200408-21)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: August 23, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #60630
ID: 200408-21

Synopsis

With special configurations of Cacti it is possible to change passwords via a SQL injection attack.

Background

Cacti is a complete web-based front end to rrdtool.

Affected Packages

Package: net-analyzer/cacti
Vulnerable: <= 0.8.5a
Unaffected: >= 0.8.5a-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Cacti is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack where an attacker may inject SQL into the Username field.

Impact

An attacker could compromise the Cacti service and potentially execute programs with the permissions of the user running Cacti. Only systems with php_flag magic_quotes_gpc set to Off are vulnerable. By default, Gentoo Linux installs PHP with this option set to On.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version of Cacti.

Resolution

All users should upgrade to the latest available version of Cacti, as follows:
Code:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1"
# emerge ">=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1"
