Package : cacti Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0783 CVE-2008-0785

Since the previous security update, the cacti package could no longer be rebuilt from the source package. This update corrects that problem. Note that this problem does not affect regular use of the provided binary packages (.deb).

For reference the original advisory text follows.

It was discovered that Cacti, a systems and services monitoring frontend, performed insufficient input sanitising, leading to cross site scripting and SQL injection being possible.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 0.8.6i-3.5.

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