Debian Security Advisory DSA 1250-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                         Moritz Muehlenhoff

Package        : cacti
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-6799
Debian Bug     : 404818

It was discovered that cacti, a frontend to rrdtool, performs insufficient
validation of data passed to the "cmd" script, which allows SQL injection
and the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.6c-7sarge4.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.8.6i-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.6i-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
