Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Brownout 2007-05-16 00:56:51 UTC
Trying to log in from an IPv6 address (static) with "Restrict this session to
this IP address" disabled gives:
"Software error:

Undef to trick_taint at Bugzilla/Util.pm line 52
	Bugzilla::Util::trick_taint('undef') called at Bugzilla/Auth/CGI.pm line 69
	Bugzilla::Auth::CGI::login('Bugzilla::Auth::CGI', 2) called at Bugzilla.pm line 74
	Bugzilla::login('Bugzilla', 2) called at /srv/org/wikimedia/bugzilla/query.cgi
line 61"

Logging in from an IPv6 address checking "Restrict this session to this IP
address" and trying to change the password gives:
"Software error:

Undef to trick_taint at Bugzilla/Util.pm line 52
 Bugzilla::Util::trick_taint('undef') called at Bugzilla/Auth/CGI.pm line 69
  Bugzilla::Auth::CGI::login('Bugzilla::Auth::CGI', 2) called at Bugzilla.pm line 74
  Bugzilla::login('Bugzilla', 2) called at
/srv/org/wikimedia/bugzilla/userprefs.cgi line 337"

No problems encountered setting other preferences. All fine in IPv4.
(tested with Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.3)

This is an upstream problem.  We're upgrading versions soon, anyway, so 
probably it will go away in the near future.

Bug is at :
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392575

You have to hardcode bugzilla IP address in your /etc/hosts

Changing to LATER, adding +upstream.
Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2009-10-13 20:05:35 UTC
Can't you leave it open pending for an upgrade ? Our current bugzilla needs an upgrade ;)

Should be fixed now. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=392575 and its blocker https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=399073 were both fixed in 3.6.

Feel free to reopen if it still happens.
Comment 11 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2010-09-21 19:15:30 UTC
Looks like bugzilla got upgraded to a new server which do not support IPv6 or at least it is not referenced in DNS.


$ dig +short ANY bugzilla.wikimedia.org
kaulen.wikimedia.org.
208.80.152.149
$

I will assume upstream actually fixed the issue and this bug can be closed.
