    Vulnerability  : insufficient input sanitising

    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0783 CVE-2008-0785
    
    Since the previous security update, the cacti package could no longer
    be rebuilt from the source package. This update corrects that problem.
    Note that this problem does not affect regular use of the provided
    binary packages (.deb).
    
    For reference the original advisory text follows.
    
    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-3.5.
