Package        : request-tracker3.8
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2012-4730 CVE-2012-4732 CVE-2012-4734 CVE-2012-4735

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Request Tracker, an issue
tracking system.

	Authenticated users can add arbitrary headers or content to
	mail generated by RT.	

	A CSRF vulnerability may allow attackers to toggle ticket

	If users follow a crafted URI and log in to RT, they may
	trigger actions which would ordinarily blocked by the CSRF
	prevention logic.

	Several different vulnerabilities in GnuPG processing allow
	attackers to cause RT to improperly sign outgoing email.

	If GnuPG support is enabled, authenticated users attackers can
	create arbitrary files as the web server user, which may
	enable arbitrary code execution.

Please note that if you run request-tracker3.8 under the Apache web
server, you must stop and start Apache manually.  The "restart"
mechanism is not recommended, especially when using mod_perl.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
in version 3.8.8-7+squeeze6.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.0.7-2 of the request-tracker4 package.

We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker3.8 packages.
