Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : drupal (MDVSA-2013:074)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66088


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated drupal packages fix security vulnerabilities :

Drupal core's text filtering system provides several features including removing inappropriate HTML tags and automatically linking content that appears to be a link. A pattern in Drupal's text matching was found to be inefficient with certain specially crafted strings.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that users must have the ability to post content sent to the filter system such as a role with the post comments or Forum topic: Create new content permission (CVE-2012-1588).

Drupal core's Form API allows users to set a destination, but failed to validate that the URL was internal to the site. This weakness could be abused to redirect the login to a remote site with a malicious script that harvests the login credentials and redirects to the live site. This vulnerability is mitigated only by the end user's ability to recognize a URL with malicious query parameters to avoid the social engineering required to exploit the problem (CVE-2012-1589).

Drupal core's forum lists fail to check user access to nodes when displaying them in the forum overview page. If an unpublished node was the most recently updated in a forum then users who should not have access to unpublished forum posts were still be able to see meta-data about the forum post such as the post title (CVE-2012-1590).

Drupal core provides the ability to have private files, including images, and Image Styles which create derivative images from an original image that may differ, for example, in size or saturation.
Drupal core failed to properly terminate the page request for cached image styles allowing users to access image derivatives for images they should not be able to view. Furthermore, Drupal didn't set the right headers to prevent image styles from being cached in the browser (CVE-2012-1591).

Drupal core provides the ability to list nodes on a site at admin/content. Drupal core failed to confirm a user viewing that page had access to each node in the list. This vulnerability only concerns sites running a contributed node access module and is mitigated by the fact that users must have a role with the Access the content overview page permission. Unpublished nodes were not displayed to users who only had the Access the content overview page permission (CVE-2012-2153).

The request_path function in includes/ in Drupal 7.14 and earlier allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via the q[] parameter to index.php, which reveals the installation path in an error message (CVE-2012-2922).

A bug in the installer code was identified that allows an attacker to re-install Drupal using an external database server under certain transient conditions. This could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code on the original server (Drupal SA-CORE-2012-003).

For sites using the core OpenID module, an information disclosure vulnerability was identified that allows an attacker to read files on the local filesystem by attempting to log in to the site using a malicious OpenID server (Drupal SA-CORE-2012-003).

A vulnerability was identified that allows blocked users to appear in user search results, even when the search results are viewed by unprivileged users (CVE-2012-5651).

Drupal core's file upload feature blocks the upload of many files that can be executed on the server by munging the filename. A malicious user could name a file in a manner that bypasses this munging of the filename in Drupal's input validation (CVE-2012-5653).

Multiple vulnerabilities were fixed in the supported Drupal core version 7 (DRUPAL-SA-CORE-2013-001).

A reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability (XSS) was identified in certain Drupal JavaScript functions that pass unexpected user input into jQuery causing it to insert HTML into the page when the intended behavior is to select DOM elements. Multiple core and contributed modules are affected by this issue.

A vulnerability was identified that exposes the title or, in some cases, the content of nodes that the user should not have access to.

Drupal core provides the ability to have private files, including images. A vulnerability was identified in which derivative images (which Drupal automatically creates from these images based on image styles and which may differ, for example, in size or saturation) did not always receive the same protection. Under some circumstances, this would allow users to access image derivatives for images they should not be able to view.

The drupal package was updated to latest version 7.19 to fix above vulnerabilities.
