Description

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in aggregate_graphs.php in Cacti before 1.1.16 allows remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via specially crafted HTTP Referer headers, related to the $cancel_url variable. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix (lack of the htmlspecialchars ENT_QUOTES flag) for CVE-2017-11163.
