Thursday, Jun 24th, 2010

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:

* Everybody could search for time-tracking information, not just
members of the timetrackinggroup.

Vulnerability Details

Class:       Remote Information Disclosure
Versions:    2.17.1 to 3.2.6, 3.3.1 to 3.4.6, 3.5.1 to 3.6, 3.7
Fixed In:    3.2.7, 3.4.7, 3.6.1, 3.7.1
Description: Normally, information about time-tracking (estimated
hours, actual hours, hours worked, and deadlines) is
restricted to users in the "time-tracking group".
However, any user was able, by crafting their own
search URL, to search for bugs based using those
fields as criteria, thus possibly exposing sensitive
time-tracking information by a user seeing that a bug
matched their search.
