Subject: CVE Request: information disclosure in MantisBT attachments

Please assign a CVE ID for the following issue.


MantisBT issue attachments can be downloaded without permission.

Due to an incorrect access check, by guessing the download URL 
correctly, unprivileged users can download files from a private project 
with restricted access to attachments, i.e. where 
$g_download_attachments_threshold /
$g_view_attachments_threshold are set e.g. to 55 (developer), if another 
project to which they have access does not restrict attachments download.

Affected versions:
<= 1.2.17

Fixed in versions:
1.2.18 (not yet released)

See Github [1]

Issue was discovered by Florian Fuchs and fixed by Paul Richards (former 
MantisBT developer)

Further details available in our issue tracker [2]
