Debian: New mantis packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mantis, a web based bug tracking system. Custom fields were not appropriately protected by per-item access control, allowing for sensitive data to be published. Multiple cross site scripting issues allowed a remote attacker to insert malicious HTML or web script into Mantis web pages. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Mantis, a web based
bug tracking system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:

CVE-2006-6574

   Custom fields were not appropriately protected by per-item access

The stable distribution (etch) is not affected by these problems.
