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.

  • 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.

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.
