Description

Multiple security issues (cross-site scripting, missing input sanitizing and SQL injection) have been discovered in Cacti, a web interface for graphing of monitoring systems.

Furthermore, the fix for CVE-2014-4002 in the previous security update has been brought in-line with the upstream fix as it caused a regression for people using the plug-in system.

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.
