Package        : cacti
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian Bug     : 578909

It was discovered that Cacti, a frontend to rrdtool for monitoring
systems and services missed input sanitising, making an SQL injection
attack possible.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.7b-2.1+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.
