4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Mantis, which can
be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "t_core_path" parameter in
"bug_sponsorship_list_view_inc.php" isn't properly verified, before
it used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary
files from external and local resources.

(not recommended setting).
