    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:
    
    CVE-2005-4238
    
        Missing input sanitising allows remote attackers  to inject
        arbitrary web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2005-4518
    
        Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis allows remote attackers to
        bypass the file upload size restriction.
    
    CVE-2005-4519
    
        Tobias Klein discovered several SQL injection vulnerabilities that
        allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands.
    
    CVE-2005-4520
    
        Tobias Klein discovered unspecified "port injection"
        vulnerabilities in filters.
    
    CVE-2005-4521
    
        Tobias Klein discovered a CRLF injection vulnerability that allows
        remote attackers to modify HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response
        splitting attacks.
    
    CVE-2005-4522
    
        Tobias Klein discovered several cross-site scripting (XSS)
        vulnerabilities that allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary
        web script or HTML.
    
    CVE-2005-4523
    
        Tobias Klein discovered that Mantis discloses private bugs via
        public RSS feeds, which allows remote attackers to obtain
        sensitive information.
    
    CVE-2005-4524
    
        Tobias Klein discoverd that Mantis does not properly handle "Make
        note private" when a bug is being resolved, which has unknown
        impact and attack vectors, probably related to an information
        leak.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected by
    these problems.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.19.2-5sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.19.4-1.
    
    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.

          Size/MD5 checksum:   897448 a5d28b04680faf1abbda95cc18b28bac
    
    
      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
