Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Request Tracker, an extensible trouble-ticket tracking system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2014-9472

Christian Loos discovered a remote denial of service vulnerability,
exploitable via the email gateway and affecting any installation
which accepts mail from untrusted sources. Depending on RT's
logging configuration, a remote attacker can take advantage of
this flaw to cause CPU and excessive disk usage.

CVE-2015-1165

Christian Loos discovered an information disclosure flaw which may
reveal RSS feeds URLs, and thus ticket data.

CVE-2015-1464

It was discovered that RSS feed URLs can be leveraged to perform
session hijacking, allowing a user with the URL to log in as the
user that created the feed.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 3.8.8-7+squeeze9.

We recommend that you upgrade your request-tracker3.8 packages.
