FreeBSD : drupal -- multiple vulnerabilities (609c790e-ce0a-11dd-a721-0030843d3802)

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Drupal Project reports :

The update system is vulnerable to Cross site request forgeries.
Malicious users may cause the superuser (user 1) to execute old
updates that may damage the database.

When an input format is deleted, not all existing content on a site is
updated to reflect this deletion. Such content is then displayed
unfiltered. This may lead to cross site scripting attacks when harmful
tags are no longer stripped from 'malicious' content that was posted
earlier.
