Mantis Cross-Site Request Forgery Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple cross-site request forgery vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Mantis Bug Tracker installed on the remote host does not verify the validity of HTTP requests before performing various administrative actions. If a remote attacker can trick a logged-in administrator into viewing a specially-crafted page, he can leverage this issue to launch cross-site request forgery attacks against the affected application, such as creating additional users with administrator privileges.

Solution

Upgrade to Mantis 1.2.0a1 or later.
