    Package        : cacti
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-6799
    Debian Bug     : 404818
    
    It was discovered that cacti, a frontend to rrdtool, performs insufficient
    validation of data passed to the "cmd" script, which allows SQL injection
    and the execution of arbitrary shell commands.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.6c-7sarge4.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.8.6i-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.6i-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.
