Fedora 16 : bugzilla-4.0.6-1.fc16 (2012-6368)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58928
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe following security issues have been discovered in Bugzilla :
- When abusing the X-FORWARDED-FOR header, an attacker could bypass the lockout policy allowing a possible brute-force discovery of a valid user password.
- An attacker can get access to some bug information using the victim's credentials using a specially crafted HTML page.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected bugzilla package.
