Summary

The remote host is missing an update to cacti announced via advisory DSA 764-1. Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in cacti, a round-robin database (RRD) tool that helps create graphs from database information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following problems: CVE-2005-1524 Maciej Piotr Falkiewicz and an anonymous researcher discovered an input validation bug that allows an attacker to include arbitrary PHP code from remote sites which will allow the execution of arbitrary code on the server running cacti. CVE-2005-1525 Due to mising input validation cacti allows a remote attacker to insert arbitrary SQL statements. CVE-2005-1526 Maciej Piotr Falkiewicz discovered an input validation bug that allows an attacker to include arbitrary PHP code from remote sites which will allow the execution of arbitrary code on the server running cacti. CVE-2005-2148 Stefan Esser discovered that the update for the abovely mentioned vulnerabilities does not perform proper input validation to protect against common attacks. CVE-2005-2149 Stefan Esser discovered that the update for CVE-2005-1525 allows remote attackers to modify session information to gain privileges and disable the use of addslashes to protect against SQL injection. For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 0.6.7-2.5.
