- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : drupal
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-4002

Ayman Hourieh discovered that Drupal, a dynamic website platform,
performs insufficient input sanitising in the user module, which
might lead to cross-site scripting.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.5.3-6.1sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.5.8-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.


Upgrade Instructions
