Mantis: Multiple vulnerabilities — GLSA 200510-24

Mantis is affected by multiple vulnerabilities ranging from information disclosure to arbitrary script execution.

Affected Packages

www-apps/mantisbt on all architectures
Affected versions < 0.19.3
Unaffected versions >= 0.19.3

Background

Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.

Description

Mantis contains several vulnerabilities, including:

  • a remote file inclusion vulnerability
  • an SQL injection vulnerability
  • multiple cross site scripting vulnerabilities
  • multiple information disclosure vulnerabilities

Impact

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.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mantisbt-0.19.3"
