Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-21 11:11:14 EDT
A denial of service flaw was found in the way MantisBT, a free popular web-based issue tracking system, performed processing of certain type of View Issues page search queries. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted query (filter combining some criteria and a text search with 'any condition') that, when processed by the MantisBT system, would lead to excessive system resources consumption (denial of service), possibly leading to complete MantisBT server instance unavailability.
