Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2016-02-11 10:52:18 UTC
From ${URL} :
-bug:0002656: Authentication using web authentication as a user not in the
cacti database allows complete access Classified by upstream as a security fix.
Upstream fix is

Accessing cacti using a user name not the cacti database fills the log with
database error messages and allows complete access to everything, including the
user administration pages. The bug is in auth_login.php which fails to check
the query actually found any data or not.

Fixed in tagged but (as of writing) unreleased 0.8.8g.

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
