Package        : mantis
Vulnerability  : cross site code execution
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Joao Gouveia discovered an uninitialized variable which was insecurely
used with file inclusions in the mantis package, a php based bug
tracking system.  The Debian Security Team found even more similar
problems.  When these occasions are exploited, a remote user is able
to execute arbitrary code under the webserver user id on the web
server hosting the mantis system.

These problems have been fixed in version 0.17.1-2.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 0.17.3-3 for the unstable
distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected, since it doesn't contain the mantis package.

We recommend that you upgrade your mantis packages immediately.

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.
