Package : mantis
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2005-4238 CVE-2005-4518 CVE-2005-4519 CVE-2005-4520 CVE-2005-4521 CVE-2005-4522 CVE-2005-4523 CVE-2005-4524
BugTraq IDs : 15842 16046
Debian Bug : 345288

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

CVE-2005-4238

Missing input sanitising allows remote attackers to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML.

CVE-2005-4518

Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis allows remote attackers to
bypass the file upload size restriction.

CVE-2005-4519

Tobias Klein discovered several SQL injection vulnerabilities that
allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands.

CVE-2005-4520

Tobias Klein discovered unspecified "port injection"
vulnerabilities in filters.

CVE-2005-4521

Tobias Klein discovered a CRLF injection vulnerability that allows
remote attackers to modify HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response
splitting attacks.

CVE-2005-4522

Tobias Klein discovered several cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities that allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary
web script or HTML.

CVE-2005-4523

Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis discloses private bugs via
public RSS feeds, which allows remote attackers to obtain
sensitive information.

CVE-2005-4524

Tobias Klein discoverd that Mantis does not properly handle "Make
note private" when a bug is being resolved, which has unknown
impact and attack vectors, probably related to an information
leak.

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 0.19.2-5sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mantis package.
