Vendor:
================
www.mantisbt.org



Product:
==================
Mantis Bug Tracker
v1.3.0 / 2.3.0

MantisBT is a popular free web-based bug tracking system. It is written in PHP works with MySQL, MS SQL, and PostgreSQL databases.


Vulnerability Type:
===============================
Pre-Auth Remote Password Reset



CVE Reference:
==============
CVE-2017-7615



Security Issue:
================
Mantis account verification page 'verify.php' allows resetting ANY user's password.
Remote un-authenticated attackers can send HTTP GET requests to Hijack ANY Mantis accounts by guessing the ID / username.

Vulnerable code:

In verify.php line 66:

if( $f_confirm_hash != $t_token_confirm_hash ) {

trigger_error( ERROR_LOST_PASSWORD_CONFIRM_HASH_INVALID, ERROR );

}

This code attempts to verify a user account and compares hashes for a user request.
However, by supplying empty value we easily bypass the security check.

e.g.

http://127.0.0.1/mantisbt-2.3.0/verify.php?id=1&confirm_hash=

This will then allow you to change passwords and hijack ANY mantisbt accounts.

All version >= 1.3.0 as well as 2.3.0 are affected, 1.2.x versions are not affected.
