Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : bugzilla (MDVSA-2014:169)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77648


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated bugzilla packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Adobe does not properly restrict the SWF file format, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks against Bugzilla's JSONP endpoint, possibly obtaining sensitive bug information, via a crafted OBJECT element with SWF content satisfying the character-set requirements of a callback API (CVE-2014-1546).


Update the affected bugzilla and / or bugzilla-contrib packages.
