    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Request Tracker, an
    extensible trouble-ticket tracking system. The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-9472
    
        Christian Loos discovered a remote denial of service vulnerability,
        exploitable via the email gateway and affecting any installation
        which accepts mail from untrusted sources. Depending on RT's
        logging configuration, a remote attacker can take advantage of
        this flaw to cause CPU and excessive disk usage.
    
    CVE-2015-1165
    
        Christian Loos discovered an information disclosure flaw which may
        reveal RSS feeds URLs, and thus ticket data.
    
    CVE-2015-1464
    
        It was discovered that RSS feed URLs can be leveraged to perform
        session hijacking, allowing a user with the URL to log in as the
        user that created the feed.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.0.7-5+deb7u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.8-3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker4 packages.
