Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

BestPractical report :

Internal audits of the RT codebase have uncovered a number of security
vulnerabilities in RT. We are releasing versions 3.8.12 and 4.0.6 to
resolve these vulnerabilities, as well as patches which apply atop all
released versions of 3.8 and 4.0.

The vulnerabilities addressed by 3.8.12, 4.0.6, and the below patches
include the following :

The previously released tool to upgrade weak password hashes as part
of CVE-2011-0009 was an incomplete fix and failed to upgrade passwords
of disabled users.

RT versions 3.0 and above contain a number of cross-site scripting
(XSS) vulnerabilities which allow an attacker to run JavaScript with
the user's credentials. CVE-2011-2083 is assigned to this

RT versions 3.0 and above are vulnerable to multiple information
disclosure vulnerabilities. This includes the ability for privileged
users to expose users' previous password hashes -- this vulnerability
is particularly dangerous given RT's weak hashing previous to the fix
in CVE-2011-0009. A separate vulnerability allows privileged users to
obtain correspondence history for any ticket in RT. CVE-2011-2084 is
assigned to this vulnerability.

All publicly released versions of RT are vulnerable to cross-site
request forgery (CSRF). CVE-2011-2085 is assigned to this

We have also added a separate configuration option
($RestrictLoginReferrer) to prevent login CSRF, a different class of
CSRF attack.

RT versions 3.6.1 and above are vulnerable to a remote execution of
code vulnerability if the optional VERP configuration options
($VERPPrefix and $VERPDomain) are enabled. RT 3.8.0 and higher are
vulnerable to a limited remote execution of code which can be
leveraged for privilege escalation. RT 4.0.0 and above contain a
vulnerability in the global $DisallowExecuteCode option, allowing
sufficiently privileged users to still execute code even if RT was
configured to not allow it. CVE-2011-4458 is assigned to this set of

RT versions 3.0 and above may, under some circumstances, still respect
rights that a user only has by way of a currently-disabled group.
CVE-2011-4459 is assigned to this vulnerability.

RT versions 2.0 and above are vulnerable to a SQL injection attack,
which allow privileged users to obtain arbitrary information from the
database. CVE-2011-4460 is assigned to this vulnerability.
