    Synopsis
    ========

    Mantis is affected by an SQL injection and several cross-site scripting
    (XSS) vulnerabilities.

    Background
    ==========

    Mantis is a web-based bugtracking system written in PHP.

    Affected packages
    =================

        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1 www-apps/mantisbt < 0.19.2 >= 0.19.2

    Description
    ===========

    Mantis fails to properly sanitize untrusted input before using it. This
    leads to an SQL injection and several cross-site scripting
    vulnerabilities.

    Impact
    ======

    An attacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerability to
    access or modify information from the Mantis database. Furthermore the
    cross-site scripting issues give an attacker the ability to inject and
    execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication
    credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

    Workaround
    ==========

    There is no known workaround at this time.

    Resolution
    ==========

    All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:

        # emerge --sync
        # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/mantisbt-0.19.2"
