Medium Nessus Plugin ID 63393


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


Upstream Drupal has reported SA-CORE-2012-004 [1] which corrects multiple vulnerabilities :

1) Access bypass (User module search - Drupal 6 and 7) 2) Access bypass (Upload module - Drupal 6) 3) Arbitrary PHP code execution (File upload modules - Drupal 6 and 7)

CVEs have been requested and are not yet assigned.

These flaws have been fixed in Drupal 6.27 and 7.18.

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


Update the affected drupal6 and / or drupal7 packages.
