FreeBSD : drupal7 -- Denial of service (a4d71e4c-7bf4-11e2-84cd-d43d7e0c7c02)

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


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Drupal Security Team reports :

Drupal core's Image module allows for the on-demand generation of
image derivatives. This capability can be abused by requesting a large
number of new derivatives which can fill up the server disk space, and
which can cause a very high CPU load. Either of these effects may lead
to the site becoming unavailable or unresponsive.
