Technical Details

Severity Level:

Low Severity

CVSS Score:


CVSS Base Vector:

This host is installed with MantisBT and is prone to a cross-site-scripting vulnerability.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The flaw is due to: - An input validation error for PATH_INFO in the View Filters page (view_filters_page.php). - An input validation error in the Edit Filter page(manage_filter_edit_page.php).

Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary code (if CSP settings permit it) through a crafted PATH_INFO. NOTE: This vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2018-13055.

Affected Versions:
MantisBT version 2.1.0 through 2.17.0.

Upgrade to MantisBT version 2.17.1 or later. Please see the references for more information.
