Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-28 20:48:13 UTC
When we file security bugs, we usually have a CVE ID in the Summary (sometimes
there are ID's in the Description and comments).  It would be nice if the CVE
id's could be a link to MITRE's site.


Comment 1 David Lawrence 2005-04-29 19:13:17 UTC
Testing CVE-1234-1234 CAN-1234-1234

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-04-29 19:14:19 UTC
That is awesome.  Will it work if the id is in the Summary?

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2005-04-29 19:36:43 UTC
Not sure, at first it doesnt seem so beacuase the summary is html filtered to
prevent cross site scripting attacks. I will need to look deeper and see if it
can be done. Comments are easy cause there is already a nice interface for
adding additional recipes for auto linking things.

Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2005-04-29 19:40:31 UTC
If not, don't worry about it too much.  I'll just make sure I put the CVE ID in
a comment as well as the summary.

Comment 5 David Lawrence 2008-09-16 16:52:33 UTC
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.

Comment 6 David Lawrence 2010-01-15 17:33:29 UTC
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.4 of the Bugzilla codebase and
therefore this feature will need to be implemented against the new release.
Updating bug version to 3.2.

Comment 7 David Lawrence 2010-08-25 21:41:57 UTC
Red Hat has now upgraded to Bugzilla 3.6 and this bug will now be reassigned to that version. It would be helpful to the Bugzilla Development Team if this bug is verified to still be an issue with the latest version. If it is no longer an issue, then feel free to close, otherwise please comment that it is still a problem and we will try to address the issue as soon as we can.
