Package : request-tracker3.4/request-tracker3.6
Vulnerability : session hijack
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2009-3585


Mikal Gule discovered that request-tracker, an extensible trouble-ticket
tracking system, is prone to an attack, where an attacker with access
to the same domain can hijack a user's RT session.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.7-5+lenny3.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.1-4+etch1 of request-tracker3.6 and version 3.4.5-2+etch1
of request-tracker3.4.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.9-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker packages.
