Mantis is affected by multiple vulnerabilities ranging from file upload and SQL injection to cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting.
|Package||www-apps/mantisbt on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.19.4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.19.4|
Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.
Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis contains several vulnerabilities, including:
An attacker could possibly exploit the file upload 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 and HTTP response splitting may allow an attacker to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
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-0.19.4"
