Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-03-31 09:51:12 UTC
From ${URL} :

A posting to bugtraq from Deutsche Telekom [1] noted multiple flaws in Cacti 0.8.7g:

CVE-2014-2326: stored XSS
"The Cacti application is susceptible to stored XSS attacks. This is mainly the result of improper output 

CVE-2014-2327: missing CSRF token
"The Cacti application does not implement any CSRF tokens. More about CSRF attacks, risks and mitigations 
see This attack has a vast impact on 
the security of the Cacti application, as multiple configuration parameters can be changed using a CSRF 
attack. One very critical attack vector is the modification of several binary files in the Cacti 
configuration, which may then be executed on the server. This results in full compromise of the Cacti host 
by just clicking a web link. A proof of concept exploit has been developed, which allows this attack, 
resulting in full (system level) access of the Cacti system. Further attack scenarios include the 
modification of the Cacti configuration and adding arbitrary (admin) users to the application."

CVE-2014-2328: use of exec-like function calls without safety checks allow arbitrary command execution
"Cacti makes use of exec-like method PHP function calls, which execute command shell code without any 
safety checks in place. In combination with a CSRF weakness this can be triggered without the knowledge of 
the Cacti user. Also, for more elaborate attacks, this can be combined with a XSS attack. Such an attack 
will result in full system (Cacti host) access without any interaction or knowledge of the Cacti admin."

@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.
