FreeBSD : drupal7 -- Denial of service (a4d71e4c-7bf4-11e2-84cd-d43d7e0c7c02)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 64744
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionDrupal Security Team reports :
Drupal core's Image module allows for the on-demand generation of image derivatives. This capability can be abused by requesting a large number of new derivatives which can fill up the server disk space, and which can cause a very high CPU load. Either of these effects may lead to the site becoming unavailable or unresponsive.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
