Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mantis: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200812-07)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 02, 2008
Bug(s): #238570, #241940, #242722
ID: 200812-07

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mantis, the most severe of which leading to the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Mantis is a PHP/MySQL/Web based bugtracking system.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/mantisbt
Vulnerable: < 1.1.4-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.1.4-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple issues have been reported in Mantis:
  • EgiX reported that manage_proj_page.php does not correctly sanitize the sort parameter before passing it to create_function() in core/utility_api.php (CVE-2008-4687).
  • Privileges of viewers are not sufficiently checked before composing a link with issue data in the source anchor (CVE-2008-4688).
  • Mantis does not unset the session cookie during logout (CVE-2008-4689).
  • Mantis does not set the secure flag for the session cookie in an HTTPS session (CVE-2008-3102).


Impact

Remote unauthenticated attackers could exploit these vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary PHP commands, disclose sensitive issue data, or hijack a user's sessions.

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-1.1.4-r1"
