The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in drupal7, a PHP website platform. The vulnerabilities affect the embedded versions of the jQuery JavaScript library and the Typo3 Phar Stream Wrapper library.


It was discovered that the jQuery version embedded in Drupal was prone to a cross site scripting vulnerability in jQuery.extend().

It was discovered that incomplete validation in a Phar processing library embedded in Drupal, a fully-featured content management framework, could result in information disclosure.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 7.32-1+deb8u17.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
