Fedora 12 : drupal-views-6.x.2.11-1.fc12 (2010-10124)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

- Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2010-067
(http://drupal.org/node/829840) * Project: Views
(third-party module) * Version: 5.x, 6.x * Date:
2010-June-16 * Security risk: Less critical *
Exploitable from: Remote

- Vulnerability: Multiple vulnerabilities --------
- The Views module provides a flexible method for Drupal
site designers to control how lists and tables of
content are presented. -------- CROSS SITE REQUEST
FORGERY (CSRF) ----------------------------------- The
Views UI module, which is included with Views, can be
used to enable/disable Views by following a link to a
particular page (e.g.
admin/build/views/disable/frontpage). As no protections,
such as form tokens, are in place to prevent forged
requests to these pages, the feature is vulnerable to a
Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF [1]) that would allow
an attacker to enable/disable all Views on a site.
Mitigating factors: If Views UI module is disabled Views
will no longer be affected by this vulnerability. This
issue affects Views for Drupal 5 and Drupal 6. --------
------------------------------------------ Under certain
circumstances, Views could display URLs or aggregator
feed titles without escaping, resulting in a Cross Site
Scripting (XSS [2]) vulnerability. An attacker could
exploit this to gain full administrative access. This
issue affects Views for Drupal 6 only. -------- VERSIONS
--------------------------------------------------- *
Views module for Drupal 5.x versions prior to 5.x-1.8 *
Views module for Drupal 6.x versions prior to 6.x-2.11
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the
contributed Views [3] module, there is nothing you need
to do. -------- SOLUTION
---- Install the latest version: * If you use the Views
module for Drupal 5.x upgrade to Views 5.x-1.8 [4] * If
you use the Views module for Drupal 6.x upgrade to Views
6.x-2.11 [5] See also the Views project page [6].
-------- REPORTED BY
- * The Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability
was reported by Martin Barbella (mbarbella [7]). * The
Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities were reported
by Earl Miles (merlinofchaos [8]), module maintainer and
Daniel Wehner (dereine [9]), module co-maintainer
-------- FIXED BY
