Vulnerability Details

Class:       Cross Site Request Forgery
Versions:    3.7.1 to 4.0.13, 4.1.1 to 4.2.9, 4.3.1 to 4.4.4, 4.5.1 to 4.5.4
Fixed In:    4.0.14, 4.2.10, 4.4.5, 4.5.5
Description: Adobe does not properly restrict the SWF file format,
             which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site
             request forgery (CSRF) attacks against Bugzilla's JSONP
             endpoint, possibly obtaining sensitive bug information,
             via a crafted OBJECT element with SWF content satisfying
             the character-set requirements of a callback API.
CVE Number:  CVE-2014-1546
Comment 2 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2014-10-12 13:41:28 UTC
CVE-2014-1546 (
  The response function in the JSONP endpoint in WebService/Server/
  in jsonrpc.cgi in Bugzilla 3.x and 4.x before 4.0.14, 4.1.x and 4.2.x before
  4.2.10, 4.3.x and 4.4.x before 4.4.5, and 4.5.x before 4.5.5 accepts certain
  long callback values and does not restrict the initial bytes of a JSONP
  response, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site request
  forgery (CSRF) attacks, and obtain sensitive information, via a crafted
  OBJECT element with SWF content consistent with the _bz_callback character
