New drupal packages are available for Debian GNU/Linux

Debian Security Advisory DSA 745-1 security@debian.org

Package : drupal
Vulnerability : arbitrary command execution
Problem type : input validation errors
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CAN-2005-1921, CAN-2005-2106, CAN-2005-2116

Two input validation errors were discovered in drupal and its bundled xmlrpc module. These errors can lead to the execution of arbitrary commands on the web server running drupal.

drupal was not included in the old stable distribution (woody).

For the current stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in version 4.5.3-3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 4.5.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
