FreeBSD : mantis -- 'view_filters_page.php' XSS vulnerability (592815da-9eed-11da-b410-000e0c2e438a)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21430


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


r0t reports :

Mantis contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to 'target_field' parameter in 'view_filters_page.php' is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.


Update the affected package.
