Subject: CVE-2015-1042: URL redirection issue in MantisBT


Please update CVE-2015-1042 with the information below


A bug in the URL sanitization routine allows an attacker to craft an URL 
that can redirect outside of the MantisBT instance's domain.

This is related to CVE-2014-6316 [1], and the same API function is 
affected by the same vulnerability, but the root cause is different.

Both examples below will redirect to Google:
- On a server with http connection:
- On a server with https connection:

Affected versions:
- >= 1.2.0a3, <= 1.2.18
- 1.3.0-beta.1

Fixed in versions:
- 1.2.19 (not yet released)
- 1.3.0-beta.2 (not yet released)

See Github [2]

The issue was discovered by Alejo Popovici [3] and fixed by Damien Regad 
(MantisBT Developer).
