------------FILE INCLUSION------------ On a server configured for IP-based virtual hosts, Drupal may be caused to include and execute specifically named files outside of its root directory. This bug affects both Drupal 5 and Drupal 6. ------------CROSS SITE SCRIPTING------------ The title of book pages is not always properly escaped, enabling users with the 'create book content' permission or the permission to edit any node in the book hierarchy to insert arbitrary HTML and script code into pages. Such a Cross site scripting [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_scripting ] attack may lead to the attacker gaining administrator access. This bug affects Drupal 6. Remember to log in to your site as the admin user before upgrading this package. After upgrading the package, browse to http://host/drupal/update.php to run the upgrade script.
