Description Ville Skyttä 2006-12-14 17:02:04 EST

"Mantis before 1.1.0a2 sets the default value of $g_bug_reminder_threshold to
"reporter" instead of a more privileged role, which has unknown impact and
attack vectors, possibly related to frequency of reminders."

The CVE entry says 1.0.6 is vulnerable, however it looks to me as if it's not,
see the change in revision at

FC-3 and FC-4 appear to be vulnerable.
Comment 1 Gianluca Sforna 2006-12-17 04:02:40 EST
AFAICT, 1.0.6 is definetely not affected:


I should ask on extras-list what I am supposed to do with legacy stuff, I
believe security is important but I can't afford to guarantee updates for 5

However, the situation could improve if:


will be done in time for 1.1.0
Comment 2 Gianluca Sforna 2007-01-09 05:47:05 EST
FC3/4 are not receiving updates anymore.

FC5 and newer are not affected. Closing
