    Several vulnerabilities were in Request Tracker, an issue tracking
    system.
    
    CVE-2011-1685
        If the external custom field feature is enabled, Request Tracker
        allows authenticated users to execute arbitrary code with the
        permissions of the web server, possible triggered by a cross-site
        request forgery attack.  (External custom fields are disabled by
        default.)
    
    CVE-2011-1686
        Multiple SQL injection attacks allow authenticated users to obtain
        data from the database in an unauthorized way.
    
    CVE-2011-1687
        An information leak allows an authenticated privileged user to
        obtain sensitive information, such as encrypted passwords, via the
        search interface.
    
    CVE-2011-1688
        When running under certain web servers (such as Lighttpd), Request
        Tracker is vulnerable to a directory traversal attack, allowing
        attackers to read any files accessible to the web server.  Request
        Tracker instances running under Apache or Nginx are not affected.
    
    CVE-2011-1689
        Request Tracker contains multiple cross-site scripting
        vulnerabilities.
    
    CVE-2011-1690
        Request Tracker enables attackers to redirect authentication
        credentials supplied by legitimate users to third-party servers.
    
    
    For the oldstable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.6.7-5+lenny6 of the request-tracker3.6 package.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.8.8-7+squeeze1 of the request-tracker3.8 package.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.8.10-1 of the
    request-tracker3.8 package.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your Request Tracker packages.
