Sec Adv, v1

>  are not allowed to read.

  Let's make that:

  Users using the WebService interface may access Bugzilla's time-tracking fields even if they normally cannot see them.

>Description: Bugzilla does not properly escape the 'buildid' field in
>             the guided form when filing bugs. From 2.17.1 till 2.23.3,
>             this field was based exclusively on the User-Agent string
>             returned by your web browser, which may be considered as
>             safe or not.

  Don't put "which may be considered as safe or not"--security folks will be unhappy with that, as it's never safe.

> Since 2.23.4, this parameter can be defined
>             in the URL passed to enter_bug.cgi, overwriting the
>             User-Agent string and may lead to cross-site scripting.

  Mention also:

  The guided form is not usually used by Bugzilla installations, as it is shipped only as an example to be modified for their own use.

>Issue 2
>Class:       Manipulation Of Data

  "Command Injection" I believe.

>Versions:    2.23.4 and above
>Description: Bugzilla 2.23.4 and newer use the Email:: modules instead
>             of the Mail:: and MIME:: ones. The argument passed to the -f
>             option of Email::Send::Sendmail() is insufficiently escaped
>             and may lead to arbitrary code execution

  "limited command injection" instead of "arbitrary code execution". (The commands you can run are very limited, but you can still run commands.)

> when called from
>   , a script which has also been introduced in 2.23.4.

  "was" instead of "has also been".

>Description: WebService allows you to get data from a Bugzilla installation
>             using XML-RPC. Time-related data of bugs are returned in all
>             cases, even when the user asking for these data does not have
>             the required privileges.

  "Bugzilla's WebService (XML-RPC) interface allows you to access the time-tracking fields (such as Deadline, Estimated Time, etc.) on all bugs, even if you normally cannot access time-tracking fields."

  Otherwise, looks great! :-) Thank you!
