mantis: XSS on the summary page
Last modified: 2016-03-04 06:14:11 EST
A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Mantis, a web-based issue tracking system, performed sanitization of category / project names in the summary page. A Mantis user with manager / administrator privilege could create category or project with specially-crafted name that, when visited would lead to arbitrary web script or HTML code execution.
