- More information:
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.
Cacti has XSS because it does not properly reject unintended characters, related to use of the sanitize_uri function in lib/functions.php.
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).
No escaping occurs before printing out the value of the SNMP community string (SNMP Options) in the View poller cache, leading to XSS.
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).
Disabling a user account does not immediately invalidate any permissions granted to that account (e.g., permission to view logs).
Multiple Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities exist in multiple files.
Cacti allows authenticated users with User Management permissions to inject arbitrary web script or HTML in the
new_usernamefield during creation of a new user via
Copymethod at user_admin.php.
Under certain ldap conditions, Cacti authentication can be bypassed with certain credential types.
For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.8h+ds1-10+deb9u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your cacti packages.
