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
vulnerabilities:

CVE-2005-3973

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

CVE-2005-3974

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

CVE-2005-3975

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.
