Description Tomas Hoger 2009-06-16 05:19:30 EDT
New RT upstream versions 3.6.8 and 3.8.4 were released, mentioning following security fix:

  The most important fix is that RT now requires the SuperUser
  right to edit global RT at a Glance.  In all previous 3.8
  releases, the "ShowConfigTab" right unintentionally enabled this.
  If you have not granted this right to any non-administrative user,
  then this issue should not affect you.


Upstream announcements contain patches that can be used with older versions instead of moving to new upstream version.
