Mantis is affected by multiple vulnerabilities ranging from information disclosure to arbitrary script execution.
|Package||www-apps/mantisbt on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.19.3|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.19.3|
Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.
Mantis contains several vulnerabilities, including:
An attacker could exploit the remote file inclusion vulnerability to execute arbitrary script code, and the SQL injection vulnerability to access or modify sensitive 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. An attacker could exploit other vulnerabilities to disclose information.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mantisbt-0.19.3"
