Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-778-1 mantis

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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:
A remote attacker could supply a specially crafted URL to scan
arbitrary ports on arbitrary hosts that may not be accessible
otherwise.
A remote attacker was able to insert arbitrary HTML code in bug
reports, hence, cross site scripting.
A remote attacker was able to insert arbitrary HTML code in 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.
