Summary

The remote host is missing an update for the 'cacti' package(s) announced via the DLA-2965-1 advisory.

Insight

Insight

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Cacti, a web interface for graphing of monitoring systems, leading to authentication bypass and cross-site scripting (XSS). An attacker may get access to unauthorized areas and impersonate other users, under certain conditions. CVE-2018-10060 Cacti has XSS because it does not properly reject unintended characters, related to use of the sanitize_uri function in lib/functions.php. CVE-2018-10061 Cacti has XSS because it makes certain htmlspecialchars calls without the ENT_QUOTES flag (these calls occur when the html_escape function in lib/html.php is not used). CVE-2019-11025 No escaping occurs before printing out the value of the SNMP community string (SNMP Options) in the View poller cache, leading to XSS. CVE-2020-7106 Cacti has stored XSS in multiple files as demonstrated by the description parameter in data_sources.php (a raw string from the database that is displayed by $header to trigger the XSS). CVE-2020-13230 Disabling a user account does not immediately invalidate any permissions granted to that account (e.g., permission to view logs). CVE-2020-23226 Multiple Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities exist in multiple files. CVE-2021-23225 Cacti allows authenticated users with User Management permissions to inject arbitrary web script or HTML in the 'new_username' field during creation of a new user via 'Copy' method at user_admin.php. CVE-2022-0730 Under certain ldap conditions, Cacti authentication can be bypassed with certain credential types.
