A vulnerability has been reported in Bugzilla, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. disclose certain information about private bug reports by tricking a logged in administrative user into visiting a malicious web site.
Note: An error when handling the "X-Forwarded-For" HTTP header can be exploited to bypass certain account lockout restrictions.
The vulnerability is reported in versions 2.17.4 through 3.6.8, 3.7.1 through 4.0.5, and 4.1.1 through 4.2.
Solution: Update to version 3.6.9, 4.0.6, or 4.2.1.
Provided and/or discovered by: Reported by the vendor.
The vendor credits Soroush Dalili for reporting the account lockout restriction bug.
