Drupal core - Denial of service

Tue, 12/19/2006 - 10:53am
  • Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2007-002.
  • Project: Drupal Core.
  • Version: 4.6, 4.7
  • Date: 2007-Jan-05.
  • Security risk: Less critical.
  • Exploitable from: Remote.
  • Vulnerability: Denial of service.
Description

The way page caching was implemented allows a denial of service attack. An attacker has to have the ability to post content on the site. He or she would then be able to poison the page cache, so that it returns cached 404 page not found errors for existing pages.

If the page cache is not enabled, your site is not vulnerable. The vulnerability only affects sites running on top of MySQL.

Versions affected
  • Drupal 4.6.x versions before Drupal 4.6.11.
  • Drupal 4.7.x versions before Drupal 4.7.5.
Solution Reported by

Drupal core - Cross site scripting

Tue, 12/19/2006 - 10:43am
  • Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-2007-001.
  • Project: Drupal Core.
  • Version: 4.6, 4.7.
  • Date: 2007-Jan-05.
  • Security risk: Less critical.
  • Exploitable from: Remote.
  • Vulnerability: Cross site scripting.
Description

A few arguments passed via URLs are not properly sanitized before display. When an attacker is able to entice an administrator to follow a specially crafted link, arbitrary HTML and script code can be injected and executed in the victim's session. Such an attack may lead to administrator access if certain conditions are met. Learn more about XSS on Wikipedia.

Versions affected
  • Drupal 4.6.x versions before Drupal 4.6.11.
  • Drupal 4.7.x versions before Drupal 4.7.5.
