rgod discovered that the Cacti cmd.php and copy_cacti_user.php scripts
do not properly control access to the command shell, and are remotely
accessible by unauthenticated users. This allows SQL injection via
cmd.php and copy_cacti_user.php URLs. Further, the results from the
injected SQL query are not properly sanitized before being passed to a
command shell. The vulnerabilities require that the
"register_argc_argv" option is enabled, which is the Gentoo default.
Also, a number of similar problems in other scripts were reported.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
These vulnerabilties can result in the execution of arbitrary shell
commands or information disclosure via crafted SQL queries.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Cacti users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.6i-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
