Vulnerability  : incorrect permissions
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: yes

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.

0.17.5-6.

We recommend that you update your mantis package.
