Bugzilla < 3.2.1/3.3.2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4921


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors


The remote Bugzilla software is vulnerable to several flaws. First, valid users can post content in HTML or JavaScript. Given this, other users viewing the content may have malicious code executed within their browser. Second, the 'process_bug.cgi' script is vulnerable to a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) flaw. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to entice a valid user into clicking a link or opening a malicious HTML email. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing commands with the permissions of the valid user account.


Upgrade to version 3.2.1, 3.3.2 or higher.
