It has been reported [0] that mantisbt 1.2.17 is vulnerable to a SQL injection vulnerability tracked as CVE-2014-8554 [1].

When the project_id parameter of the SOAP-request starts with the integer of a project to which the user (or anonymous) is authorised, the ENTIRE value will become the first item of $t_projects. As this value is concatenated in the SQL statement, SQL-injection becomes possible.

The problem has been fixed upstream [2] but no release is available yet.
Vendor will release a new version in the following days, but as this issue is critical and the patch [2] is very simple its highly recommend to apply the patch [2] as long as no release is available.

This task depends upon
