Bugzilla Security Advisory

Unauthorized Account Creation

An attacker creating a new Bugzilla account can override certain parameters when finalizing the account creation that can lead to the user being created with a different email address than originally requested. The overridden login name could be automatically added to groups based on the group's regular expression setting.

Cross-Site Scripting

During an audit of the Bugzilla code base, several places were found where cross-site scripting exploits could occur which could allow an attacker to access sensitive information.

Information Leak

If a new comment was marked private to the insider group, and a flag was set in the same transaction, the comment would be visible to flag recipients even if they were not in the insider group.

Social Engineering

Search results can be exported as a CSV file which can then be imported into external spreadsheet programs. Specially formatted field values can be interpreted as formulas which can be executed and used to attack a user's computer.
