Subject: please assign CVE for cacti bug 2667: SQL Injection Vulnerability


I just found the description below about an sql vulnerability in the
cacti bug tracker:

Can a CVE be assigned for this issue?

Advisory: Cacti SQL Injection Vulnerability
Author: Do9gy of Tencent Security Platform Department
Affected Version: 0.8.8.g(the latest version & the older versions)
Vulnerability Description

Recetly, I found a SQL Injection Vulnerability in ‘Cacti-0.8.8g'
program, Cacti is widely used in many companies.
Vulnerable file: /cacti/tree.php:
line 208:
    switch ($current_type) {
        $i = 0;
        /* it's nice to default to the parent sorting style for new items */
        if (empty($_GET["id"])) {
            $default_sorting_type = db_fetch_cell("select
sort_children_type from graph_tree_items where id=" . $_GET["parent_id"]);
            $default_sorting_type = TREE_ORDERING_NONE;


The parameter parent_id is used without any validation.
1. Login


3. mysql log: select sort_children_type from graph_tree_items where id=8
and sleep(1)
