Package : drupal7
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2014-1475 CVE-2014-1476

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Drupal, a
fully-featured content management framework. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project identifies the following issues:


Christian Mainka and Vladislav Mladenov reported a vulnerability
in the OpenID module that allows a malicious user to log in as
other users on the site, including administrators, and hijack
their accounts.


Matt Vance and Damien Tournoud reported an access bypass
vulnerability in the taxonomy module. Under certain circumstances,
unpublished content can appear on listing pages provided by the
taxonomy module and will be visible to users who should not have
permission to see it.

These fixes require extra updates to the database which can be done from
the administration pages. Furthermore this update introduces a new
security hardening element for the form API. Please refer to the
upstream advisory at https://drupal.org/SA-CORE-2014-001 for further

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 7.14-2+deb7u2.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 7.26-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 7.26-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal7 packages.
