Cacti cmd.php Arbitrary Command Execution Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks if Cacti's cmd.php is remotely accessible

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that allows arbitrary
command execution.

Description :

The remote host is running Cacti, a web-based frontend to RRDTool for
network graphing.

The version of Cacti on the remote host does not properly check
whether ensure the 'cmd.php' script is being run from a commandline
and fails to sanitize user-supplied input before using it in database
queries. Provided PHP's 'register_argc_argv' parameter is enabled,
which is the default, a possible hacker can launch SQL injection attacks
against the underlying database and even to execute arbitrary code on
the remote host subject to the rights of the web server user id.
