Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA161] DSA-161-1 mantis

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-161-1 mantis

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

A problem with user rights has been discovered in the Mantis
package, a PHP based bug tracking system. The Mantis system didn't
check whether a user is permitted to view a bug, but displays it right
away if the user entered a valid bug id.
Another bug in Mantis caused the 'View Bugs' page to list bugs from
both public and private projects when no projects are accessible to
the current user.
These problems have been fixed in version 0.17.1-2.5 for the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 0.17.5-2 for the unstable
distribution (sid). The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected, since it doesn't contain the mantis package.
Additional information:
We recommend that you upgrade your mantis packages.
