Description

The last update of cacti in squeeze-lts, version 0.8.7g-1+squeeze7, had two regressions that caused certain output of scripts to not be processed and caused the save button of graphs.php to not save the changes.

The regressions have been fixed in 0.8.7g-1+squeeze8.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
