FreeBSD : mantis -- multiple vulnerabilities (55587adb-b49d-11e1-8df1-0004aca374af)

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Mantis reports :

Roland Becker and Damien Regad (MantisBT developers) found that any
user able to report issues via the SOAP interface could also modify
any bugnotes (comments) created by other users. In a default/typical
MantisBT installation, SOAP API is enabled and any user can sign up to
report new issues. This vulnerability therefore impacts upon many
public facing MantisBT installations.

Roland Becker (MantisBT developer) found that the
delete_attachments_threshold permission was not being checked when a
user attempted to delete an attachment from an issue. The more generic
update_bug_threshold permission was being checked instead. MantisBT
administrators may have been under the false impression that their
configuration of the delete_attachments_threshold was successfully
preventing unwanted users from deleting attachments.
