This advisory covers two security issues that have recently been
fixed in the Bugzilla code:
+ Some files stored on the web server are not correctly protected
against external access and can be viewed from a web browser.
+ Restricting a bug to a group while moving the bug to another product
has no effect if the group is not used by both products. The bug may
become public if no other group restriction applies.
All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as
Class: Information leak
Versions: all versions before 3.0.11, 3.2.6, 3.4.5, and 3.5.3
Description: Bugzilla allows web browsers to serve the contents of
files in the CVS/, contrib/, docs/en/xml/, and t/
directories, as well as the old-params.txt file.
These files do not contain sensitive data by default, but
custom installations may have added scripts or files into
these directories which contain e.g. passwords or some
other sensitive information. We now forbird access to
these directories from a web browser as a preventive
CVE Number: CVE-2009-3989
Class: Information leak
Versions: 3.3.1 to 3.4.4, 3.5.1, 3.5.2
Description: When moving a bug from one product to another, an
intermediate page is displayed letting you select the
groups the bug should be restricted to in the new
product. However, a regression in the 3.4.x series
made it ignore all groups which are not available in
both products. As a workaround, you had to move the
bug to the new product first and then restrict it to
the desired groups, in two distinct steps, which
could make the bug temporarily public.
CVE Number: CVE-2009-3387
