Subject: CVE request: SQL injection and shell escaping issues in Cacti <

Cacti 0.8.8b was released today [1] with a changelog that notes:

Cacti 0.8.8b Change Log
   * security: SQL injection and shell escaping issues

It looks like the SQL injection issue is in api_poller.php and
utility.php [2]

I think there are two shell escaping issue:

1) snmp.php: Use escapeshellarg() instead of custom escape function for snmp library [3]
2) rrd.php: Properly escape all user input for consumption by rrdtool [4]


Looks like 3 CVEs are needed.
