Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2008-2105

Original release date: 05/07/2008
Last revised: 09/20/2011


email_in.pl in Bugzilla 2.23.4, 3.0.x before 3.0.4, and 3.1.x before 3.1.4 allows remote authenticated users to more easily spoof the changer of a bug via a @reporter command in the body of an e-mail message, which overrides the e-mail address as normally obtained from the From e-mail header. NOTE: since From headers are easily spoofed, this only crosses privilege boundaries in environments that provide additional verification of e-mail addresses.

CVSS v2 Base Score: 3.5 (LOW) (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:N/I:P/A:N) (legend)
Impact Subscore: 2.9
Exploitability Subscore: 6.8
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium
Authentication: Required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized modification
