Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200507-12 (Bugzilla: Unauthorized access and information disclosure)

Bugzilla allows any user to modify the flags of any bug     (CAN-2005-2173). Bugzilla inserts bugs into the database before marking     them as private, in connection with MySQL replication this could lead     to a race condition (CAN-2005-2174).

Impact :

By manually changing the URL to process_bug.cgi, a remote attacker     could modify the flags of any given bug, which could trigger an email     including the bug summary to be sent to the attacker. The race     condition when using Bugzilla with MySQL replication could lead to a     short timespan (usually less than a second) where the summary of     private bugs is exposed to all users.

Workaround :

There are no known workarounds at this time.
