    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    Debian Bug     : 578909
    
    It was discovered that Cacti, a frontend to rrdtool for monitoring
    systems and services missed input sanitising, making an SQL injection
    attack possible.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.7b-2.1+lenny2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.
