Summary
=======

Bugzilla is a Web-based bug-tracking system used by a large number of
software projects. The following security issues have been discovered
in Bugzilla:

* When abusing the X-FORWARDED-FOR header, an attacker could bypass
the lockout policy allowing a possible brute-force discovery of a
valid user password.

* An attacker can get access to some bug information using
the victim's credentials using a specially crafted HTML page.

All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as
possible.


Vulnerability Details
=====================

Class: Unauthorized Access
Versions: 3.5.3 to 3.6.8, 3.7.1 to 4.0.5, 4.1.1 to 4.2
Fixed In: 3.6.9, 4.0.6, 4.2.1
Description: Due to a lack of proper validation of the X-FORWARDED-FOR
header of an authentication request, an attacker could
bypass the current lockout policy used for protection
against brute-force password discovery. This vulnerability
can only be exploited if the 'inbound_proxies' parameter
is set.

Fixed In: 3.6.9, 4.0.6, 4.2.1
Description: A JavaScript template used by buglist.cgi could be used
by a malicious script to permit an attacker to gain access

allowed to see, using the victim's credentials. To be
exploitable, the victim must be logged in when visiting
the attacker's malicious page.
