All supported architectures
Mantis is affected by multiple vulnerabilities ranging from file upload and
SQL injection to cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting.
Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.
Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis contains several vulnerabilities,
- a file upload vulnerability.
- an injection vulnerability in filters.
- an SQL injection vulnerability in the user-management page.
- a port cross-site-scripting vulnerability in filters.
- an HTTP header CRLF injection vulnerability.
An attacker could possibly exploit the file upload vulnerability to
execute arbitrary script code, and the SQL injection vulnerability to
access or modify sensitive information from the Mantis database.
Furthermore, the cross-site scripting and HTTP response splitting may
allow an attacker to inject and execute malicious script code or to
steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising
the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:
