Vulnerability Scan Summary
Mantis: XSS and SQL injection vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

A possible hacker could possibly use the SQL injection vulnerability to
access or modify information from the Mantis database. Furthermore the

execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication
credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Mantis users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
