[GLSA-200509-16] Mantis: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Mantis: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200509-16
(Mantis: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities)


Mantis fails to properly sanitize untrusted input before using it.
This leads to an SQL injection and several cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities.

Impact

A possible hacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerability to
access or modify information from the Mantis database. Furthermore the
cross-site scripting issues give a possible hacker the ability to inject and
execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication
credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
