    Several security related problems have been discovered in Mantis, a
    web-based bug tracking system.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
        A cross-site scripting vulnerability allows attackers to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML.
        A file inclusion vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute
        arbitrary PHP code and include arbitrary local files.
        An SQL injection vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute
        arbitrary SQL commands.
        Mantis can be tricked into displaying the otherwise hidden real
        mail address of its users.
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.19.2-4.1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.19.3-0.1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your mantis package.
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
