4.2rc1, 4.0.3, 3.6.7, and 3.4.13 Security AdvisoryTuesday, January 31th, 2012
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 a user creates a new account, Bugzilla doesn't correctly reject email addresses containing non-ASCII characters, which could be used to impersonate another user account. * A CSRF vulnerability in the implementation of the JSON-RPC API could be used to make changes to bugs or execute some admin tasks without the victim's knowledge. All affected installations are encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible. Vulnerability Details ===================== Class: Account Impersonation Versions: 2.0 to 3.4.13, 3.5.1 to 3.6.7, 3.7.1 to 4.0.3, 4.1.1 to 4.2rc1 Fixed In: 3.4.14, 3.6.8, 4.0.4, 4.2rc2 Description: When a user creates a new account, Bugzilla doesn't correctly reject email addresses containing non-ASCII characters, which could be used to impersonate another user account. Such email addresses could look visually identical to other valid email addresses, and an attacker could try to confuse other users and be added to bugs he shouldn't have access to.

If a user visits an HTML page with some malicious JS code in it, an attacker could make changes to a remote Bugzilla installation on behalf of the victim's account by using the JSON-RPC API. The user would have had to be already logged in to the target site for the vulnerability to work.
