    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-2016-6127
    
        It was discovered that Request Tracker is vulnerable to a cross-site
        scripting (XSS) attack if an attacker uploads a malicious file with
        a certain content type. Installations which use the
        AlwaysDownloadAttachments config setting are unaffected by this
        flaw. The applied fix addresses all existant and future uploaded
        attachments.
    
    CVE-2017-5361
    
        It was discovered that Request Tracker is vulnerable to timing
        side-channel attacks for user passwords.
    
    CVE-2017-5943
    
        It was discovered that Request Tracker is prone to an information
        leak of cross-site request forgery (CSRF) verification tokens if a
        user is tricked into visiting a specially crafted URL by an
        attacker.
    
    
    CVE-2017-5944
    
        It was discovered that Request Tracker is prone to a remote code
        execution vulnerability in the dashboard subscription interface. A
        privileged attacker can take advantage of this flaw through
        carefully-crafted saved search names to cause unexpected code to be
        executed. The applied fix addresses all existant and future saved
        searches.
    
    Additionally to the above mentioned CVEs, this update workarounds
    CVE-2015-7686 in Email::Address which could induce a denial of service
    of Request Tracker itself.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.2.8-3+deb8u2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been
    fixed in version 4.4.1-3+deb9u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.4.1-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker4 packages.
