Description Kurt Seifried 2012-02-24 00:38:43 UTC
Upstream has released [1] versions 4.0.5, 4.2 to correct a CSRF vulnerability

Due to a lack of validation of the enctype form attribute when making POST requests to xmlrpc.cgi, a possible CSRF vulnerability was discovered. If a user visits an HTML page with some malicious HTML code in it, an attacker could make changes to a remote Bugzilla installation on behalf of the victim's account by using the XML-RPC API on a site running mod_perl. Sites running under mod_cgi are not affected. Also the user would have had to be already logged in to the target site for the vulnerability to work.
