MantisBT 1.2.15 Released

MantisBT 1.2.15 is a security update for the stable 1.2.x branch. All installations that are currently running any 1.2.x version are strongly advised to upgrade to this release.

The following security issues were resolved:

  • Any malicious user could use the view issues page (search.php) to execute a filter that could bring down the site by overloading the database server (CVE-2013-1883). Affects MantisBT 1.2.12 and later.  Refer to issue #15573 for detailed information.
  • A cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allowed execution of arbitrary JavaScript code when deleting a version. Affects MantisBT 1.2.14 and later. Refer to issue #15511 for detailed information.
  • In some cases, the ‘Close’ button would be available to unauthorized users, allowing them to close issues at will, bypassing the workflow settings. Affects MantisBT 1.2.12 and later. Refer to issue #15453 for detailed information.

This release also includes several bug fixes and enhancements to the tracker and the SOAP api, as well as updated translations in many languages.
