Package : drupal
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2005-3973 CVE-2005-3974CVE-2005-3975
BugTraq IDs : 15674 15677 15663

Several security related problems have been discovered in drupal, a
fully-featured content management/discussion engine. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following


Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities allow remote
attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.


When running on PHP5, Drupal does not correctly enforce user
privileges, which allows remote attackers to bypass the "access
user profiles" permission.


An interpretation conflict allows remote authenticated users to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML via HTML in a file with a GIF
or JPEG file extension.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain drupal packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.3-5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
