Debian Security Advisory DSA 778-1 security@debian.org

Package : mantis
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-2556 CAN-2005-2557

Two security related problems have been discovered in Mantis, a
web-based bug tracking system. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CAN-2005-2556

A remote attacker could insert arbitrary SQL code into SQL
statements.

CAN-2005-2557

A remote attacker was able to insert arbitrary HTML code bug
reports, hence, cross site scripting.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected by
these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.2-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.2-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your mantis package.
