                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          New bugzilla packages are available
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2001:107-07
Issue date:        2001-08-30
Updated on:        2001-09-10
Product:           Red Hat Powertools
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

The updated bugzilla package fixes numerous security issues which were
present in previous releases of bugzilla.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Powertools 7.0 - alpha, i386, noarch

Red Hat Powertools 7.1 - alpha, i386, noarch

3. Problem description:

Bugzilla-2.14 is a general security update. The serious security problems
fixed are:

  - multiple instances where valid users could obtain data on
    "confidential" bugs without authorization.

  - multiple instances of security holes where parameters were not being
    checked/escaped properly.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory only contains
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this to be an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat
Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
