This issue would affect Bugzilla as provided by all versions of Fedora and EPEL.

Additionally, another flaw is noted in the same advisory (CVE-2012-1968: information leak via HTML bug mails), but that flaw only affects Bugzilla 4.1.1 and higher (which is not yet provided in Fedora, but 4.2.1 is in Rawhide, which should be updated to 4.2.2).
