Name        : bugzilla
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 4.2.9
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://www.bugzilla.org/
Summary     : Bug tracking system
Description :
Bugzilla is a popular bug tracking system used by multiple open source projects
It requires a database engine installed - either MySQL, PostgreSQL or Oracle.
Without one of these database engines (local or remote), Bugzilla will not work
- see the Release Notes for details.

Update Information:

Previous versions of bugzilla had the following security issues:

* The login form had no CSRF protection, meaning that an attacker could force the victim to log in using the attacker's credentials.

* Dangerous control characters can be inserted into Bugzilla, notably into bug comments, which can then be used to execute local commands.

The first issue has the CVE number CVE-2014-1517. Please see http://www.bugzilla.org/security/4.0.11/ for all the gory details.

Both issues were fixed in 4.2.8 but it introduced a regression in bug commenting that was fixed in 4.2.9.

* Sat Apr 19 2014 Emmanuel Seyman <emmanuel at seyman.fr> - 4.2.9-1
- Update to 4.2.9 (regression fix for 4.2.8 which was a security update)
- Drop backported patches
* Sun Jan 19 2014 Emmanuel Seyman <emmanuel at seyman.fr> - 4.2.7-3
- Fix the comparison of module versions (#1044854)
- Really honor the PROJECT environment variable (#911943)
