[Pkg-cacti-maint] Bug#742768: Regarding your cacti security report CVE-2014-2326 - 2328

I created 3 bugs to fix the issues outlined.  I'm still working on
CVE-2014-2327 as it will require a little more work to mitigate in the
Cacti code.  As for your questions about past CVE, the currently
reported ones are valid from the reported version to the latest.  Once I
have resolved the issue in CVE-2014-2327, I will post patches all the
way back to 0.8.7g to 0.8.8b.  A new release is pending release after
testing is complete.

If you are logged into the bug system you should be able to read the
descriptions of the issues that I added as private comments.

CVE-2014-2326 Unspecified HTML Injection Vulnerability

CVE-2014-2327 Cross Site Request Forgery Vulnerability

CVE-2014-2328 Unspecified Remote Command Execution Vulnerability
