Critical Bugzilla flaw allows access to unpatched vulnerability information

2015/09/18

Help Net Security - (International) Mozilla released an update addressing a critical vulnerability in its Bugzilla bug-tracking software in which an attacker could gain access to information about a project's unpatched flaws by tricking the system into granting domain-specific privileges. Attackers can create an account with an email address different than originally requested due to a vulnerability where login names longer than 127 characters could cause the domain name of the email address to be corrupted.
