Bugzilla 'time-tracking' fields Information Disclosure

medium Nessus Plugin ID 47166


A CGI hosted on the remote web server is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability.


The version of Bugzilla hosted on the remote web server allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute a boolean chart search using time tracking fields such as 'estimated_time', 'remaining_time' 'work_time' 'actual_time', 'percentage_complete' or 'deadline' even though the attacker is not part of the group defined by 'timetrackinggroup' parameter.

Successful exploitation of this issue could allow an attacker to search for bugs that match one or more time tracking field criteria.

Although Nessus has not checked for it, the installed version is also likely to be affected by a local information disclosure issue that may allow a local user to read file 'localconfig' after checksetup.pl is run with '$use_suexec' is set to 1 in 'localconfig'.

In addition to this, the remote version of bugzilla is also vulnerable to an information disclosure issue due to bad permissions set to the 'localconfig' file, and the data/webdot and .bzr/ directories which might allow local users to read files they should otherwise not have access to.


Upgrade to Bugzilla version 3.2.7, 3.4.7, 3.6.1, 3.7.1 or later.
