Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Drupal Project reports :

A bug in the output filter employed by Drupal makes it possible for
malicious users to insert script code into pages (cross site scripting
or XSS). A bug in the private filesystem trusts the MIME type sent by
the browser, enabling malicious users with the ability to upload files
to execute cross site scripting attacks.

The BlogAPI module does not validate the extension of uploaded files,
enabling users with the 'administer content with blog api' permission
to upload harmful files. This bug affects both Drupal 5.x and 6.x.

Drupal forms contain a token to protect against cross site request
forgeries (CSRF). The token may not be validated properly for cached
forms and forms containing AHAH elements. This bug affects Drupal 6.x.

User access rules can be added or deleted upon accessing a properly
formatted URL, making such modifications vulnerable to cross site
request forgeries (CSRF). This may lead to unintended addition or
deletion of an access rule when a sufficiently privileged user visits
a page or site created by a malicious person. This bug affects both
Drupal 5.x and 6.x.

The Upload module in Drupal 6 contains privilege escalation
vulnerabilities for users with the 'upload files' permission. This can
lead to users being able to edit nodes which they are normally not
allowed to, delete any file to which the webserver has sufficient
rights, and download attachments of nodes to which they have no
access. Harmful files may also be uploaded via cross site request
forgeries (CSRF). These bugs affect Drupal 6.x.
