CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : bugzilla
SUMMARY   : Fix for remote vulnerability
DATE      : 2004-11-23 13:43:00
ID        : CLA-2004:896

RELEASES  : 9, 10

DESCRIPTION
 Bugzilla[1] is a bug tracking system used by many software projects.
 
 Bugzilla versions prior to 2.16.7 have a vulnerability[3] which
 allows a remote user to remove keywords from a ticket even without
 the necessary permissions. Such an action, however, would trigger the
 usual e-mail detailing the changes, making it easy to discover what
 happened and what was changed.
 
 Other vulnerabilities were also reported in the Bugzilla security
 announcement[2] but they do not affect the versions distributed with
 Conectiva Linux.
 
 This announcement updates Bugzilla to version 2.16.7, fixing all
 reported problems.


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all bugzilla users upgrade their packages.
 
 IMPORTANT: after the upgrade, please run the checksetup.pl bugzilla
 script:
 
 cd /srv/www/default/html/bugzilla
 ./checksetup.pl
 
 This script will make all necessary adjustments for this upgrade as
 well as alert about possible problems.
