A Bugzilla Security Advisory reports :

The following security issues have been discovered in Bugzilla :

- Internet Explorer 8 and older, and Safari before 5.0.6 do content sniffing when viewing a patch in 'Raw Unified' mode, which could trigger a cross-site scripting attack due to the execution of malicious code in the attachment.

- It is possible to determine whether or not certain group names exist while creating or updating bugs.

- Attachment descriptions with a newline in them could lead to the injection of crafted headers in email notifications sent to the requestee or the requester when editing an attachment flag.

- If an attacker has access to a user's session, he can modify that user's email address without that user being notified of the change.

- Temporary files for uploaded attachments are not deleted on Windows, which could let a user with local access to the server read them.

- Up to Bugzilla 3.4.11, if a BUGLIST cookie is compromised, it can be used to inject HTML code when viewing a bug report, leading to a cross-site scripting attack.

All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible.


Update the affected packages.
