    mantis, a PHP/MySQL web based bug tracking system, stores the password
    used to access its database in a configuration file which is
    world-readable.  This could allow a local attacker to read the
    password and gain read/write access to the database.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.17.1-3.
    
    For the old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a mantis
    package.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem is fixed in version
    0.17.5-6.
    
    We recommend that you update your mantis package.
