Package : request-tracker3.8 Vulnerability : regression Debian-specific: no

The security updates for request-tracker3.8, DSA-2480-1, DSA-2480-2, and DSA-2480-3, contained minor regressions. Namely:

  • The calendar popup page in Internet Explorer would be blocked by the CSRF protection mechanism.
  • Search results pages could not be shared without saving, sharing, and then loading the search.
  • rt-email-dashboards would fail with an error due to a call to an undefined "interp" method.

Please note that if you run request-tracker3.8 under the Apache web server, you must stop and start Apache manually. The "restart" mechanism is not recommended, especially when using mod_perl.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 3.8.8-7+squeeze5.

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