Description

Cacti is prone to multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie- based authentication credentials or to control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.

Cacti 0.8.7e is vulnerable; other versions may be affected as well.
