Summary
=======

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

* Login names longer than 127 characters can be corrupted, which could
lead to the creation of a user account with an unexpected email
address.

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


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

Class: Unauthorized Account Creation
Versions: Bugzilla 2.0 to 4.2.14, 4.3.1 to 4.4.9, 4.5.1 to 5.0
Fixed In: 4.2.15, 4.4.10, 5.0.1
Description: Login names (usually an email address) longer than 127
characters are silently truncated in MySQL which could
cause the domain name of the email address to be
corrupted. An attacker could use this vulnerability to
create an account with an email address different from the
one originally requested. The login name could then be
automatically added to groups based on the group's regular
expression setting.
