Cacti: Multiple vulnerabilities in included ADOdb — GLSA 200604-07

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the ADOdb layer included in Cacti, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Affected Packages

net-analyzer/cacti on all architectures
Affected versions < 0.8.6h_p20060108-r2
Unaffected versions >= 0.8.6h_p20060108-r2

Background

Cacti is a complete web-based frontend to rrdtool. ADOdb is a PHP-based database abstraction layer which is included in Cacti.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been identified in the copy of ADOdb included in Cacti. Andreas Sandblad discovered a dynamic code evaluation vulnerability (CVE-2006-0147) and a potential SQL injection vulnerability (CVE-2006-0146). Andy Staudacher reported another SQL injection vulnerability (CVE-2006-0410), and Gulftech Security discovered multiple cross-site-scripting issues (CVE-2006-0806).

Impact

Remote attackers could trigger these vulnerabilities by sending malicious queries to the Cacti web application, resulting in arbitrary code execution, database compromise through arbitrary SQL execution, and malicious HTML or JavaScript code injection.

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-0.8.6h_p20060108-r2"
