Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bugzilla (MDVSA-2014:200)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Updated bugzilla packages fix security vulnerabilities :

If a new comment was marked private to the insider group, and a flag
was set in the same transaction, the comment would be visible to flag
recipients even if they were not in the insider group (CVE-2014-1571).

An attacker creating a new Bugzilla account can override certain
parameters when finalizing the account creation that can lead to the
user being created with a different email address than originally
requested. The overridden login name could be automatically added to
groups based on the group's regular expression setting

During an audit of the Bugzilla code base, several places were found
where cross-site scripting exploits could occur which could allow an
attacker to access sensitive information (CVE-2014-1573).
