    Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201411-3
    =========================================
    
    Severity: Critical
    Date    : 2014-11-05
    CVE-ID  : CVE-2014-8554
    Package : mantisbt
    Type    : sql injection
    Remote  : Yes
    Link    : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE-2014
    
    Summary
    =======
    
    The package mantisbt before version 1.2.17-3 is vulnerable to SQL injection.
    
    Resolution
    ==========
    
    Upgrade to 1.2.17-3.
    
    # pacman -Syu "mantisbt>=1.2.17-3"
    
    The problem has been fixed upstream [0] but no release version is
    available yet.
    
    Workaround
    ==========
    
    None.
    
    Description
    ===========
    
    Edwin Gozeling and Wim Visser discovered that when the project_id
    parameter of the SOAP-request starts with the integer of a project to
    which the user (or anonymous) is authorized, the ENTIRE value will
    become the first item of $t_projects. As this value is concatenated in
    the SQL statement, SQL-injection becomes possible.
    
    Impact
    ======
    
    A remote attacker is able to perform SQL injection via specially crafted
    SOAP-requests. Depending on the configuration this can be escalated to
    code execution.
