FreeBSD : drupal -- SQL injection vulnerability (fa708908-a8c7-11dc-b41d-000fb5066b20)

High Nessus Plugin ID 29690


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


The Drupal Project reports :

The function taxonomy_select_nodes() directly injects variables into SQL queries instead of using placeholders. While taxonomy module itself validates the input passed to taxonomy_select_nodes(), this is a weakness in Drupal core. Several contributed modules, such as taxonomy_menu, ajaxLoader, and ubrowser, directly pass user input to taxonomy_select_nodes(), enabling SQL injection attacks by anonymous users.


Update the affected packages.
