    Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitization

    CVE ID         : CVE-2010-2092
    
    Stefan Esser discovered that cacti, a front-end to rrdtool for monitoring
    systems and services, is not properly validating input passed to the rra_id
    parameter of the graph.php script.  Due to checking the input of $_REQUEST
    but using $_GET input in a query an unauthenticated attacker is able to
    perform SQL injections via a crafted rra_id $_GET value and an additional
    valid rra_id $_POST or $_COOKIE value.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.7b-2.1+lenny3.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.7e-4.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cacti packages.
