Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The Drupal Project reports :

In some circumstances Drupal allows user-supplied data to become part
of response headers. As this user-supplied data is not always properly
escaped, this can be exploited by malicious users to execute HTTP
response splitting attacks which may lead to a variety of issues,
among them cache poisoning, cross-user defacement and injection of
arbitrary code.

The Drupal installer allows any visitor to provide credentials for a
database when the site's own database is not reachable. This allows
attackers to run arbitrary code on the site's server. An immediate
workaround is the removal of the file install.php in the Drupal root

The allowed extension list of the core Upload module contains the
extension HTML by default. Such files can be used to execute arbitrary
script code in the context of the affected site when a user views the
file. Revoking upload permissions or removing the .html extension from
the allowed extension list will stop uploads of malicious files. but
will do nothing to protect your site againstfiles that are already
present. Carefully inspect the file system path for any HTML files. We
recommend you remove any HTML file you did not update yourself. You
should look for , CSS includes, JavaScript includes, and onerror=''
attributes if you need to review files individually.

The Drupal Forms API protects against cross site request forgeries
(CSRF), where a malicious site can cause a user to unintentionally
submit a form to a site where he is authenticated. The user deletion
form does not follow the standard Forms API submission model and is
therefore not protected against this type of attack. A CSRF attack may
result in the deletion of users.

The publication status of comments is not passed during the
hook_comments API operation, causing various modules that rely on the
publication status (such as Organic groups, or Subscriptions) to mail
out unpublished comments.
