More information:

It was discovered that there were a number of cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in cacti, a web interface for monitoring systems.

  • CVE-2020-7106

    Cacti 1.2.8 has stored XSS in data_sources.php, color_templates_item.php, graphs.php, graph_items.php, lib/api_automation.php, user_admin.php, and user_group_admin.php, 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).

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.8b+dfsg-8+deb8u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your cacti packages.
