Drupal Coder Module Deserialization RCE

critical Nessus Plugin ID 92626
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


A PHP application running on the remote web server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of Drupal running on the remote web server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the Coder module, specifically in file coder_upgrade.run.php, due to improper validation of user-supplied input to the unserialize() function. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary PHP code.


Upgrade the Coder module to version 7.x-1.3 / 7.x-2.6 or later.
Alternatively, remove the entire Coder module directory from any publicly accessible website.
