Package : request-tracker3.8 Version : 3.8.8-7+squeeze8 CVE ID : CVE-2014-9472 CVE-2015-1165 CVE-2015-1464

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


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.


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


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.
