Comment 1 Olav Vitters 2012-08-30 22:54:39 CEST
Security advisory as from upstream bugzilla:

Vulnerability Details

Class:       LDAP Injection
Versions:    2.12 to 3.6.10, 3.7.1 to 4.0.7, 4.1.1 to 4.2.2,
             4.3.1 to 4.3.2
Fixed In:    3.6.11, 4.0.8, 4.2.3, 4.3.3
Description: When the user logs in using LDAP, the username is not
             escaped when building the uid=$username filter which is
             used to query the LDAP directory. This could potentially
             lead to LDAP injection.

CVE Number:  CVE-2012-3981

Class:       Directory Browsing
Versions:    2.23.2 to 3.6.10, 3.7.1 to 4.0.7, 4.1.1 to 4.2.2,
             4.3.1 to 4.3.2
Fixed In:    4.0.8, 4.2.3, 4.3.3
Description: Extensions are not protected against directory browsing
             and users can access the source code of the templates
             which may contain sensitive data.
             Directory browsing is blocked in Bugzilla 4.3.3 only,
             because it requires a configuration change in the Apache
             httpd.conf file to allow local .htaccess files to use
             Options -Indexes. To not break existing installations,
             this fix has not been backported to stable branches.
             The access to templates is blocked for all supported
             branches except the old 3.6 branch, because this branch
             doesn't have .htaccess in the bzr repository and cannot
             be fixed easily for existing installations without
             potentially conflicting with custom changes.

Comment 2 Olav Vitters 2012-08-30 23:00:17 CEST
Mageia 2 currently has Bugzilla 4.2.1, which also has a security problems fixed in 4.2.2.. though obviously should upgrade to 4.2.3:

Vulnerability Details

Class:       Information Leak
Versions:    4.1.1 to 4.2.1, 4.3.1
Fixed In:    4.2.2, 4.3.2
Description: In HTML bugmails, all bug IDs and attachment IDs are
             linkified, and hovering these links displays a tooltip
             with the bug summary or the attachment description if
             the user is allowed to see the bug or attachment.
             But when validating user permissions when generating the
             email, the permissions of the user who edited the bug were
             taken into account instead of the permissions of the
             addressee. This means that confidential information could
             be disclosed to the addressee if the other user has more
             privileges than the addressee.
             Plain text bugmails are not affected as bug and attachment
             IDs are not linkified.

CVE Number:  CVE-2012-1968

Class:       Information Leak
Versions:    2.17.5 to 3.6.9, 3.7.1 to 4.0.6, 4.1.1 to 4.2.1, 4.3.1
Fixed In:    3.6.10, 4.0.7, 4.2.2, 4.3.2
Description: The description of a private attachment could be visible
             to a user who hasn't permissions to access this attachment
             if the attachment ID is mentioned in a public comment in
             a bug that the user can see.
