Subject Name:            Cacti
Subject Summary:         Network Monitoring and Graphing Frontend
Subject Home:  
Subject Versions:        * <= 0.8.6i

Vulnerability Id:        none
Vulnerability Scope:     global (not OpenPKG specific)

Attack Feasibility:      run-time
Attack Vector:           remote network
Attack Impact:           manipulation of data, arbitrary code execution

    Three vulnerabilities have been identified and exploited [0] in the
    network monitoring and graphing frontend Cacti [1], versions up to
    and including 0.8.6i. They can be exploited by malicious people to
    bypass certain security restrictions, manipulate data and compromise
    vulnerable systems.
    First, the "cmd.php" script does not properly restrict access
    to command line usage and is installed in a Web-accessible
    location. Successful exploitation requires that the PHP variable
    "register_argc_argv" is enabled, which is the default in the OpenPKG
    "cacti" package.
    Second, input passed in the URL to "cmd.php" is not properly
    sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited
    to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
    Successful exploitation requires again that the PHP variable
    "register_argc_argv" is enabled, which is the default in the OpenPKG
    "cacti" package.
    Third, the results from the SQL queries passed by an attacker to
    "cmd.php" are not properly sanitised before being used as shell
    commands. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary shell commands,
