Package : drupal6
Vulnerability : several vulnerabilities
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2009-2372 CVE-2009-2373 CVE-2009-2374
Debian Bug : 535435 547140


Several vulnerabilities have been found in drupal6, a fully-featured
content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2009-2372

Gerhard Killesreiter discovered a flaw in the way user signatures are
handled. It is possible for a user to inject arbitrary code via a
crafted user signature. (SA-CORE-2009-007)

CVE-2009-2373

Mark Piper, Sven Herrmann and Brandon Knight discovered a cross-site
scripting issue in the forum module, which could be exploited via the
tid parameter. (SA-CORE-2009-007)

CVE-2009-2374

Sumit Datta discovered that certain drupal6 pages leak sensible
information such as user credentials. (SA-CORE-2009-007)


Several design flaws in the OpenID module have been fixed, which could
lead to cross-site request forgeries or privilege escalations. Also, the
file upload function does not process all extensions properly leading
to the possible execution of arbitrary code.
(SA-CORE-2009-008)


For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 6.6-3lenny3.

The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain drupal6.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 6.14-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your drupal6 packages.
