FreeBSD : bugzilla -- multiple vulnerabilities (6d68618a-7199-11db-a2ad-000c6ec775d9)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 23664


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


A Bugzilla Security Advisory reports :

- Sometimes the information put into the <h1> and <h2> tags in Bugzilla was not properly escaped, leading to a possible XSS vulnerability.

- Bugzilla administrators were allowed to put raw, unfiltered HTML into many fields in Bugzilla, leading to a possible XSS vulnerability.
Now, the HTML allowed in those fields is limited.

- attachment.cgi could leak the names of private attachments

- The 'deadline' field was visible in the XML format of a bug, even to users who were not a member of the 'timetrackinggroup.'

- A malicious user could pass a URL to an admin, and make the admin delete or change something that he had not intended to delete or change.

- It is possible to inject arbitrary HTML into the showdependencygraph.cgi page, allowing for a cross-site scripting attack.


Update the affected packages.
