Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Bugzilla, which can be exploited by malicious, local users and malicious people to disclose sensitive information.
1) Any user is able to search for bugs using time-tracking information, which can be exploited to e.g. disclose potentially sensitive time-tracking information without being member of the "time-tracking group".
The vulnerability is reported in versions 2.17.1 through 3.2.6, 3.3.1 through 3.4.6, 3.5.1 through 3.6, and 3.7.
2) The "localconfig" file is set to world-readable by the checksetup.pl script if "$use_suexec" is set to "1". This can be exploited to e.g. disclose the database password or the "site_wide_secret" variable used in e.g. the cross-site request forgery protection mechanism.
The vulnerability is reported in versions 3.5.1 through 3.6 and 3.7.
Solution: Update to versions 3.2.7, 3.4.7, 3.6.1, or 3.7.1.
