Description

Bugzilla installations that utilize the 'usebuggroups' feature are vulnerable to a privilege escalation issue. When a new product is added to a site that has multiple bug groups, the new group will be created automatically with extra privileges. As a result, any new users that are added to this group will gain these extra privileges.

Solution(s)

  • upgrade-bugzilla-2_14_4
  • upgrade-bugzilla-2_16_1

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
