Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Update to 5.12, security fixes: SA-2008-067 (
http://drupal.org/node/324824 ) ------------DESCRIPTION------------
Multiple vulnerabilities and weaknesses were discovered in Drupal.
------------FILE INCLUSION------------ On a server configured for
IP-based virtual hosts, Drupal may be caused to include and execute
specifically named files outside of its root directory. This bug
affects both Drupal 5 and Drupal 6. ------------CROSS SITE
SCRIPTING------------ The title of book pages is not always properly
escaped, enabling users with the 'create book content' permission or
the permission to edit any node in the book hierarchy to insert
arbitrary HTML and script code into pages. Such a Cross site scripting
[ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting ] attack may lead
to the attacker gaining administrator access. This bug affects Drupal
6. Remember to log in to your site as the admin user before upgrading
this package. After upgrading the package, browse to
http://host/drupal/update.php to run the upgrade script.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
