Download vulnerable application: None

================================
Introduction
================================

  Cacti is a complete frontend to RRDTool, it stores all of the necessary information to create graphs and populate them with data in a MySQL database. The frontend is completely PHP driven. Along with being able to maintain Graphs, Data Sources, and Round Robin Archives in a database, cacti handles the data gathering. There is also SNMP support for those used to creating traffic graphs with MRTG.  SQL  injection vulnerabilities has been discovered.The vulnerability allows any users  to execute own sql commands to compromise the web-applicaation or database management system.The vulnerabilities are located in the rra_id value of the graph.php file.This php file of older version cacti may be accessible anonymously according to the cases I found from the internet. Latest version cacti may require guest user privilege.
