Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Secunia reports :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mantis, which can be
exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system and
malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and request forgery
attacks.

Input passed to the 'filter_target' parameter in
return_dynamic_filters.php is not properly sanitised before being
returned to a user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML
and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected
site.

A vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to
perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any
validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g.
add a new user with administrative privileges by enticing a logged-in
administrator to visit a malicious site.

Input passed to the 'value' parameter in adm_config_set.php is not
properly sanitised before being used in an 'eval()' statement. This
can be exploited to e.g. execute arbitrary PHP commands via a
specially crafted request.

Input passed to the 'language' parameter in account_prefs_update.php
is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can
be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources.
