Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-4151 to
the following vulnerability:
Session fixation vulnerability in html/Elements/SetupSessionCookie in
Best Practical Solutions RT 3.0.0 through 3.6.9 and 3.8.x through
3.8.5 allows remote attackers to hijack web sessions by setting the
session identifier via a manipulation that leverages "HTTP access to
the RT server," a related issue to CVE-2009-3585.
How many times more do you intend to submit this bug?
Within the last 1/2 hour I have receive 3 of them.
Just filed in relevant CVE identifiers, so you can reference them
in Fedora updates.

Do you agree that this BZ is a duplicate of
It's at least how I read this BZ
It rather seems that the additional id was assigned for the "additional, related vulnerability" mentioned in the upstream advisory, which was described too vaguely for Mitre to be sure the original id should be used to cover both cases. I don't really dare to guess the attack vector form the upstream description.
Possibly, however, this leave me "standing in the rain".
No fix, no test case to reproduce, nothing to investigate ...
... just a vague report :-)
The only feasible option for me to handle this CVE seems to be
"sitting it out" and hope somebody will fix this CVE with life or close it.
Well, the same patch seems to exist to fix both issues. So there's nothing to sit out... if you apply the upstream patch, then both issues should be corrected, right?
The vulnerabilities are similar, but whether they are identical or not doesn't really matter. Upstream provided a single patch to fix both issues (which isn't uncommon).

OK, fixes are applied, packages are pending.
=> closing as duplicate.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 543962 ***
Closing this as a duplicate is wrong. I've added this CVE to the issue in bodhi, so when the rt3 updates go through they'll note this CVE identifier as well. Arbitrarily deciding this is a duplicate isn't something we should do unless we want to go through the actions of getting MITRE to reject this CVE (and I don't think it's worth the effort). This bug should get closed as well as the other when the packages get pushed to stable.
Keeping it closed, but marking it ERRATA rather than DUPLICATE for correctness.
You know what?
I have been wasting more time on copeing with this silly RH bureaucracy and what buttzilla had munched them into, than with applying patches.
Next time, please refrain from using this bureaucracy and submit an ordinary BZ.
