    BugTraq Id     : 6501 6502
    
    Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Bugzilla, a web-based bug
    tracking system, by its authors.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures Project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
    
     * CAN-2003-0012 (BugTraq ID 6502): The provided data collection
       script intended to be run as a nightly cron job changes the
       permissions of the data/mining directory to be world-writable every
       time it runs.  This would enable local users to alter or delete the
       collected data.
    
     * CAN-2003-0013 (BugTraq ID 6501): The default .htaccess scripts
       provided by checksetup.pl do not block access to backups of the
       localconfig file that might be created by editors such as vi or
       emacs (typically these will have a .swp or ~ suffix).  This allows
       an end user to download one of the backup copies and potentially
       obtain your database password.
    
       This does not affect the Debian installation because there is no
       .htaccess as all data file aren't under the CGI path as they are on
       the standard Bugzilla package.  Additionally, the configuration is
       in /etc/bugzilla/localconfig and hence outside of the web directory.
    
    For the current stable distribution (woody) these problems have been
    fixed in version 2.14.2-0woody4.
    
    The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a Bugzilla
    package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bugzilla packages.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    --------------------
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next revision.
