Several security related problems have been discovered in Mantis, a
web-based bug tracking system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:


    A cross-site scripting vulnerability allows attackers to inject
    arbitrary web script or HTML.


    A file inclusion vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute
    arbitrary PHP code and include arbitrary local files.


    An SQL injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute
    arbitrary SQL commands.


    Mantis can be tricked into displaying the otherwise hidden real
    mail address of its users.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.2-4.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.3-0.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mantis package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

  its next update.
