    Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0783 CVE-2008-0785
    
    The original update for cacti unfortunately introduced a regression.
    Updated packages have been created to address this. For reference, the
    full advisory text is quoted below.
    
    It was discovered that Cacti, a systems and services monitoring frontend,
    performed insufficient input sanitising, leading to cross site scripting
    and SQL injection being possible.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.6i-3.4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8.7b-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cacti package.
    
    Upgrade instructions

    dpkg -i file.deb
