MantisBT Release Notes
+1.2.13 Security Release (2012-01-22)
+MantisBT 1.2.13 is a security update for the stable 1.2.x branch. All
+installations that are currently running any 1.2.x version are strongly advised
+to upgrade to this release.
+Two cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability issues affecting MantisBT 1.2.12
+only (earlier versions are not impacted) were discovered:
+ - A malicious person could trick a target user's browser into executing
+ arbitrary JavaScript code (CVE-2013-0197). This vulnerability is
+ critical, due to the affected page (search.php) being usable anonymously
+ on public-facing installations (i.e. without the need for a user login).
+ Refer to issue #15373 for detailed information.
+ - A user holding manager/administrator permissions could create a
+ category or project name containing JavaScript code; from that point on,
+ visitors to the Summary page (summary.php) are exposed to having the
+ JavaScript execute within their browser environment. The severity of this
+ issue is mitigated by the need to have a privileged account to modify
+ category and project names.
+ Refer to issue #15384 for detailed information.
+A workflow-related security issue was also fixed:
+ - A user with "Reporter" permissions can modify the workflow status of any
+ issue to "New" even if they do not have the necessary privileges to make
+ this change.
+ Refer to issue #15258 for detailed information.
+In addition to the corrections for the above-mentioned security issues, this
+release also includes several bug fixes and enhancements:
+ - improved Manage Configuration page (better performance, ability to filter
+ and edit config options)
+ - support for the built-in SOAP extension in addition to nusoap
+ - updated translations in many languages
+A full changelog for the 1.2.x series can be found on the official site. [1]

Are you guys aware of the fact that your download docs ( ) are redirecting to with a link named "Download MantisBT 1.2.13", your announcement mail already hit the users inboxes, but the 1.2.13 - sourceforge - folder is still empty?
Noone who doesn't know of Git and this Repo will be able to do the update currently.

We are aware of it.
There is a discussion to recall the version.
That's why the files are removed at the moment.
