Debian DLA-2466-1 : drupal7 security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 143336
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Two vulnerabilities were found in the Archive_Tar PHP module, used by Drupal, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code if a malicious user is allowed to upload tar archives.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 7.52-2+deb9u13.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.

For the detailed security status of drupal7 please refer to its security tracker page at:
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/drupal7

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected drupal7 package.
