Mantis Multiple Flaws (4)

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for the version of Mantis

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
several flaws.

Description :

According to its banner, the version of Mantis on the remote host fails
to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'g_db_type' parameter of the
'core/database_api.php' script. Provided PHP's 'register_globals'
setting is enabled, a possible hacker may be able to exploit this to connect
to arbitrary databases as well as scan for arbitrary open ports, even on
an internal network. In addition, it is reportedly prone to multiple
cross-site scripting issues.
