[EN] Mantis Bug Tracker 1.2.12 Persistent XSS

Hello Mantis Community,

few minutes ago I found an old nice persistent XSS in latest version of Mantis Bug Tracker (1.2.12).

Persistent XSS for admin

This vulnerability exists for admin user, but same could be in other part of this webapp.

Update : 18.01.2013
Few minutes ago I spoke again with Developer Team.
After this little chat I have surprise for you: new Mantis BT is comming! :)

Update 21.01.2013
As you can see now (in comments) MantisBT is available for download and soon you can get
brand new version. Patch for this vulnerability, for now is available here .

Once again I would like to thanks MantisBT Team for a fast reply, great knowledge and excellent work! :)

Cheers! o/
