inject SQL into the Username field.

<impact type="normal">
<p>
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.

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