Bugzilla < 3.6.13 / 4.0.10 / 4.2.5 / 4.4rc2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 64878


The remote web server contains a CGI application that suffers from multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Bugzilla installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists due to a flaw in the validation of the 'id' parameter upon submission of the 'show_bug.cgi' script. An attacker can leverage this to inject arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site. Note that this affects versions 2.0 to 3.6.12, 3.7.1 to 4.0.9, 4.1.1 to 4.2.4, and 4.3.1 to 4.4rc1.

- An information leak issue exists when running a query in debug mode. This can lead to the display of the SQL query used to collect the data. Confidential information could be leaked in the SQL query that is displayed. Note that this affects versions 2.17.1 to 3.6.12, and 3.7.1 to 4.0.9. (CVE-2013-0786)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Bugzilla 3.6.13 / 4.0.10 / 4.2.5 / 4.4rc2 or later.
