- Date Reported:
- 19 Jan 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 947374, Bug 947375, Bug 941036.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-16723, CVE-2019-17357, CVE-2019-17358.
- More information:
Multiple issues have been found in cacti, a server monitoring system, potentially resulting in SQL code execution or information disclosure by authenticated users.
Authenticated users may bypass authorization checks for viewing a graph by submitting requests with modified local_graph_id parameters.
The graph administration interface insufficiently sanitizes the template_id parameter, potentially resulting in SQL injection. This vulnerability might be leveraged by authenticated attackers to perform unauthorized SQL code execution on the database.
The sanitize_unserialize_selected_items function (lib/functions.php) insufficiently sanitizes user input before deserializing it, potentially resulting in unsafe deserialization of user-controlled data. This vulnerability might be leveraged by authenticated attackers to influence the program control flow or cause memory corruption.
For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.8h+ds1-10+deb9u1. Note that stretch was only affected by CVE-2018-17358.
For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 1.2.2+ds1-2+deb10u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your cacti packages.
