Vulnerability Assessment Details
Mantis: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200512-12
(Mantis: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis contains several
a file upload
an injection vulnerability in filters.
an SQL injection vulnerability in the user-management page.
a port cross-site-scripting vulnerability in filters.
HTTP header CRLF injection vulnerability.
A possible hacker could possibly exploit the file upload vulnerability
to execute arbitrary script code, and the SQL injection vulnerability
to access or modify sensitive information from the Mantis database.
Furthermore, the cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting may
permit a possible hacker to inject and execute malicious script code or to
steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising
the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mantisbt-0.19.4"
Network Security Threat Level: Medium
