Subject: [SECURITY] [DSA 1856-1] New mantis packages fix information leak

Hash: SHA1

Debian Security Advisory DSA-1856-1                                  Thijs Kinkhorst

Package        : mantis
Vulnerability  : information leak
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: yes
Debian Bug     : 425010

It was discovered that the Debian Mantis package, a web based bug
tracking system, installed the database credentials in a file with
world-readable permissions onto the local filesystem. This allows
local users to acquire the credentials used to control the Mantis

This updated package corrects this problem for new installations and
will carefully try to update existing ones. Administrators can check
the permissions of the file /etc/mantis/config_db.php to see if they
are safe for their environment.

The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain a mantis package.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.6+dfsg-2lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.8+dfsg-2.

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.

  its next update.
