Synopsis
========

With special configurations of Cacti it is possible to change passwords
via a SQL injection attack.

Background
==========

Cacti is a complete web-based front end to rrdtool.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package             /  Vulnerable  /                   Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-analyzer/cacti      <= 0.8.5a                    >= 0.8.5a-r1

Description
===========

Cacti is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack where an attacker may
inject SQL into the Username field.

Impact
======

An attacker could use these vulnerabilities to compromise the Cacti
service and potentially execute programs with the permissions of the
user running Cacti.

Workaround
==========

To prevent SQL code injection, php_flag magic_quotes_gpc should be set
to Off. By default, Gentoo Linux installs PHP with this option set to
Off.

Resolution
==========

All users should upgrade to the latest available version of Cacti, as
follows:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1"
    # emerge ">=net-analyzer/cacti-0.8.5a-r1"
