TAMPA, Fla., April 9, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — While conducting offensive security testing for a third-party client, NaviSec’s Delta Team discovered a critical zero-day exploit for all versions of Cacti services prior to v1.2.20. Upon discovery, NaviSec reported the vulnerability to Cacti and worked with them to patch it. Cacti has now released an update that closes the vulnerability.

CVSSv3 Base Score: 9.8 Critical
CVE-2022-0730 publicly exposes at least 5000 installations. Internal installations are also affected by this vulnerability. A successful exploitation would lead to unauthorized access to sensitive information within the Cacti installation
