Security advisory for Bugzilla 4.3.3, 4.2.3, 4.0.8 and 3.6.11
From: LpSolit () gmail com
Date: Thu, 30 Aug 2012 21:32:35 GMT

Summary
=======

Bugzilla is a Web-based bug-tracking system used by a large number of
software projects. The following security issues have been discovered
in Bugzilla:

* When the user logs in using LDAP, the username is not escaped
  before being passed to LDAP which could potentially lead to LDAP
  injection.

* Extensions are not protected against directory browsing by default
  and users can view the source code of templates used by the
  extensions. These templates may contain sensitive data.

All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as
possible.


Vulnerability Details
=====================

Class:       LDAP Injection
Versions:    2.12 to 3.6.10, 3.7.1 to 4.0.7, 4.1.1 to 4.2.2,
             4.3.1 to 4.3.2
Fixed In:    3.6.11, 4.0.8, 4.2.3, 4.3.3
Description: When the user logs in using LDAP, the username is not
             escaped when building the uid=$username filter which is
             used to query the LDAP directory. This could potentially
             lead to LDAP injection.

CVE Number:  CVE-2012-3981

Class:       Directory Browsing
Versions:    2.23.2 to 3.6.10, 3.7.1 to 4.0.7, 4.1.1 to 4.2.2,
             4.3.1 to 4.3.2
Fixed In:    4.0.8, 4.2.3, 4.3.3
Description: Extensions are not protected against directory browsing
             and users can access the source code of the templates
             which may contain sensitive data.
             Directory browsing is blocked in Bugzilla 4.3.3 only,
             because it requires a configuration change in the Apache
             httpd.conf file to allow local .htaccess files to use
             Options -Indexes. To not break existing installations,
             this fix has not been backported to stable branches.
             The access to templates is blocked for all supported
             branches except the old 3.6 branch, because this branch
             doesn't have .htaccess in the bzr repository and cannot
             be fixed easily for existing installations without
             potentially conflicting with custom changes.
