Description

Background

Cacti is a complete frontend to rrdtool.

Description

The side_id parameter in data_debug.php does not properly verify input allowing SQL injection.

Impact

A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Cacti users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-analyzer/cacti-1.2.16-r1"
