Fedora 18 : bugzilla-4.2.5-1.fc18 (2013-2866)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes security issues that have been discovered in
Bugzilla :

- When viewing a bug report, a bug ID containing random
code is not correctly sanitized in the HTML page if the
specified page format is invalid. This can lead to XSS.

- When running a query in debug mode, it is possible to
determine if a given confidential field value (such as a
product name) exists. Bugzilla 4.1 and newer are not
affected by this issue.

See the security advisory for more details:
http://www.bugzilla.org/security/3.6.12/

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
