Greetings Roland Becker (MantisBT developer) discovered and fixed [1] an XSS vulnerability issue affecting MantisBT releases 1.0.0 to 1.2.15 included. Account_sponsor_page.php.php did not correctly sanitize project names, enabling a malicious user to execute malicious JavaScript when visiting that page. The criticality of this issue is compounded by the fact that a high-privilege account (typically project manager or administrator) is required to edit project names. Patches attached to [1]. Can you please assign a CVE ID to this issue ? Thank you D. Regad MantisBT Developer
