Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mantis: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities (GLSA 200509-16)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 24, 2005
Bug(s): #103308
ID: 200509-16

Synopsis

Mantis is affected by an SQL injection and several cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.

Background

Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/mantisbt
Vulnerable: < 0.19.2
Unaffected: >= 0.19.2
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

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

Impact

An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerability to access or modify information from the Mantis database. Furthermore the cross-site scripting issues give an attacker 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.

Resolution

All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mantisbt-0.19.2"
