Package        : mantis

Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-6574 CVE-2007-6611
Debian Bug     : 402802 458377

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

CVE-2006-6574

    Custom fields were not appropriately protected by per-item access
    control, allowing for sensitive data to be published.

CVE-2007-6611

    Multiple cross site scripting issues allowed a remote attacker to
    insert malicious HTML or web script into Mantis web pages.
	
The stable distribution (etch) is not affected by these problems.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 0.19.2-5sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.8-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your mantis package.
